The United Methodist Health Ministry Fund has partnered with United Methodist Ministries in Omaha, NE to expand UMM’s Big Garden community gardening program into Kansas. The Big Garden is a collaborative community food initiative which partners with schools, nonprofits, and churches to facilitate community building and increased access to healthy foods through the act of gardening.
The Big Garden special grant opportunity is for Healthy Congregations churches interested in starting or expanding community gardens.
Interested congregations are invited to view the webinar recording on this page for more information and a brief Q&A session. If your church is not currently participating in the Healthy Congregations initiative, we encourage you to consider forming a team and signing up to gain eligibility for this opportunity.
To learn more, please view the webinar recording and/or slides. To begin the application process, please fill out the form below.
