Summary of Projects

The group received a grant in 2011 to support the efforts of a part-time staff to strengthen membership, community collaborations and programs. These three priorities serve key components of Bountiful Brookline's mission and support the goal of a sustainable organization.

Bountiful Brookline received a grant in 2010 for 3 interns stipends to provide Administrative/Development, Communications/Marketing & Program/Garden support.

The group received a grant in 2009 to provide support for materials and outreach for a community growers event in Brookline, to support a community garden program at High Street Veterans public housing and the expansion of the Commuter Fence Garden project to additional locations. The vision is for food to be grown in greenhouses and backyards, on roofs and balconies, up walls and along fences throughout town. Bountiful Brookline is unifying the community to promote, support and celebrate growing food for Brookline.
