We received the grant in late spring/early summer. It was a bit too late for most gardeners who already bought seedlings and seeded their plots with herbs and vegetables.
After consulting with the Mole Hill gardeners, we decided to use portion of the grant money to purchase small gardening tools (garden trowels, sheers, cultivators, watering hose, twine, etc).
The rest of the grant was spent on garlic bulbs which are to be planted in fall; we distributed these garlic bulbs among the gardeners with planting instructions.
