Hanover Master Gardener Association has just awarded grant money to The Arc of Hanover.

The Arc works with children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. This challenged group is particularly vulnerable to deficiencies in all nutritional categories. Often they don’t know about healthy foods such as vegetables and where they come from and what they taste like.

As part of the ALLY (A Life Like Yours) endeavor The Arc will build raised beds that will be wheelchair accessible outside of their offices. This will provide members with an opportunity to plant, grow and harvest vegetables. In addition there will be some nutritious cooking classes available.

Hanover Master Gardeners Association has awarded a grant of $500 towards materials and supplies to create the raised beds.

Horticultural Grants Program – Grants of up to $500 are available on a competitive basis throughout the year.  Paper Form    On-Line Form
