Do you know of a public space in Rockport that could use a new look?
Would you like to share your gardening expertise in a formal way?
How about launching a community service project to benefit other Rockporters?
If so, please consider applying for an RGC Community Projects grant.
In the Spring of 2022 grants will be made to fund projects benefiting the
town of Rockport and aligning with the Garden Club objectives to:
● stimulate the knowledge of gardening among amateurs
● aid in the protection of native plants and wildlife
● encourage civic planting and beautification
● participate in service to the community
● promote cooperative work in ecology and conservation
Only groups comprised of club members may propose projects.
Applications will be due April 4, 2022, and selected projects will be communicated in early May.
The Community Projects committee will review proposals and select projects that make a visible difference in town and or benefit many Rockport citizens.
