You can grow your own food. And we can help!

The Sow It Forward Garden Grants Program

Sow It Forward is the name of the food garden mini-grants program offered by Kitchen Gardeners International from 2012 through the spring of 2015. We are currently revamping our program in order to help more garden projects to start and will be providing information about the new program via KGI's email list in October 2015.  

Although the name of our program will be changing, its focus on helping more people--especially disadvanatged populations--to access healthy foods and gardens will stay the same. We will continue to do this by working with and through a wide variety of community-based nonprofits including but not limited to the following: schools, food banks, shelters, community gardens, colleges, libraries, prisons, and senior programs.  

The best way to learn about the new program is to join KGI's email list here which is how we will announce the launch of the new program. 

Any questions can be directed to Roger Doiron via email ( or phone (207.956.0606). For general issues related to using the KGI website, please see our help pages here:
