Grants of up to £7,500 are available to encourage the expansion of community allotments or to establish new sites across Kent and Medway.
Allotments wishing to apply should be properly established as a community resource, with a governing document, trustees or a management committee, and a named bank account.
The funding is being made available through the Kent Community Foundation’s Amity Allotment Fund to cover start-up costs for new allotments or ongoing expenses for more established sites. This could include legal or insurance costs, site purchase or rent costs, as well as the purchase of seeds, plants, tools, sheds, benches, fencing, water tanks, or communal tools.
A total of £50,000 in funding is available.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
