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 2021 grants of $1,000 to $5,000 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
For the first season, only groups comprised of club members may propose projects. Applications will be due April 9, 2021 and selected projects will be communicated in early May.
