Call For Proposals: New Mexico Centennial Gardens

November 2, 2011 SANTA FE, NM— The New Mexico Centennial is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the Centennial Gardens Program. Thanks to the generosity of the Coca-Cola Foundation, grants will be available to support school and community garden projects in New Mexico in 2012. Grants will be available via the NM Centennial Foundation at levels of ,500, ,000 and ,000.

To be eligible for a Centennial Garden grant, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or nonprofit K-12 school that is developing or currently maintaining a garden project that will help communities engage with fresh fruits and vegetables. Garden projects may be at any stage of development; planning, construction or operation. In selecting grant recipients, priority will be given to both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong collaborations and community support. Relationships with food banks or other outlets to distribute food to New Mexicans in need are a plus.

To be considered, applications must be received by 5:00pm on January 13, 2012. Guidelines and application form are available at or by calling Sarah Ives at 505-984-2012.

Editor’s note: Maybe this would be a fit for the Cloudcroft High School’s green house project.
