People's Garden Portal
Welcome to Homer Soil and Water's project to establish "People's Gardens" throughout the lower Kenai Peninsula, from Ninilchik south to communities across Kachemak Bay. All designated People's Gardens have three things in common: they benefit their communities, they include sustainable practices, and they are collaborative.
Homer Soil and Water, in partnership with MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) of the Southern Kenai Peninsula (www.mappofskp.net), received a People's Garden grant from USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The People's Garden grant enabled us--with a collaborative oversight committee--to award a number of "micro-grants" to southern peninsula schools, nonprofits, and other community groups to help them establish their own People's Gardens. Organizations selected to receive micro-grants to establish their gardens include:
