Metolius garden receives grant

The Metolius Friends Community Garden has received a Meyer Memorial Trust grant, which will allow garden organizers to purchase a tiller, tools and irrigation equipment.

The $1,037 mini-grant came through Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, which provides grants to existing community gardens to help increase the amount of food delivered to food banks and pantries, expand community garden activities, provide nutrition education, and increase the ability of people to be able to grow their own produce.
