PALERMO: Help grow a seed money grant

The Palermo Community Garden gave almost 350 pounds of fresh greens, veggies, and herbs to the Palermo Food Pantry this growing season, and it was all done with volunteer labor and a grant from, a Maine nonprofit. This is a crowd funding challenge grant that the Living Communities Foundation applies for every fall. The challenge period is from November 15 to December 15, and your support would be highly appreciated. They are attempting to win a grant of $900 this year.

But you can help, and your support will help provide food security for many of our neighbors. In addition to using 100 percent of the funds raised from businesses and individuals like you, they have a chance to win a challenge grant of up to $1,000 from based on how much is raised over the course of the 30-day challenge period. Please support the campaign here:

You are welcome to stop by during the growing season to enjoy the beautiful plants and their community of pollinators.
