Take Action Grants (TAG) is a grassroots granting program supported by Calgary Dollars and The Calgary Foundation. Grants are awarded in matching Calgary Dollar and Federal Dollar amounts to citizen-led projects that support and promote social and environmental justice. And YOU, the people in the community, can vote and help decide if the project should be supported!
This month, Sunnyside Shared Garden seeks to expand last year’s inagural garden, to provide the Kensington community with a great Communal Garden project. Sunnyside Shared would make high-quality produce available for low-income individuals and families. Because participation in the garden would be communal, drawing from a large range of income levels, boundaries that separate groups would be bridged. Finally, outdoor recreation, cleaner environment and community would blossom. They are requesting $886 in Calgary Dollars and $886 in Federal Dollars. More details are given in the video.
You can participate in the selection process by watching this video by the applicants and then voting here (you are welcome to add comments about the project too). Voting will close at midnight on February 11, 2013.
