My friend and colleague Nina Browne posted the following message. I want to push it. As one of the graduates of the first BUG cohort, my group’s project was supporting a school garden. It was an incredible experience…but more important, super helpful to the school.
Folks, this is pro bono assistance from a group of experienced gardeners now further trained. You’d be a little loopy not to accept.Take it from me – A TRUE BUG – that it will make your school garden that much more amazing.
“The BUG team was a HUGE help. I can’t say enough how much your research, volunteer assistance, wisdom, and institutional resources helped us get our project off the ground.”
Could your Brooklyn school garden project use some BUGs this fall?
Each fall, Brooklyn Botanic Garden connects a school gardening project with a team of Brooklyn Urban Gardener (BUG) trainees. BUGs can help you… and, your greening project could help train a new class of BUG volunteers.
Click here to fill out an online request for BUG partnership.
What can your school gardening project expect from this free collaboration?
Between September and January, BUG students work with your project’s leaders to:
1. Craft a “Community Asset Map” with school group input
2. Conduct a soil test, interpret and present the results to school group
3. Develop and present a customized watering and water conservation strategy
4. Teach at least one workshop — on a topic to be decided collaboratively —
with/for school group members and/or the public.
5. Organize/lead at least one greening event/activity/workday.
The deadline to apply for this opportunity is August 4, 2017.
For more information, please contact Nina Browne, BBG Community Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (718) 623-7209.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Parks Equity Initiative
We are pleased to inform you that the New York City Council has made additional funds available in every council district to support the Parks Equity Initiative (PEI) in Fiscal Year 2018. The PEI is a City Council-funded effort to help build a more equitable park system, providing Council Members with discretionary funding that they can allocate to enhance the maintenance and beautification of parks and gardens in their districts, to activate green spaces with vibrant programming or to support increased community engagement through volunteer projects and community-led activities.
GreenThumb has created a menu of options that are eligible for funding through PEI. Council Members have the option of funding gardens through the provision of various materials and equipment, including soil, lumber, plants, tools, picnic tables, rainwater harvesting systems, picnic tables, sheds, and greenhouses. If you would like to seek funding for your garden through this initiative, we recommend reaching out to your local Council Member today to request support. Council Members are expected to begin making allocation decisions in August, so call now!
