The New Castle County Farm Bureau has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the White-Reinhardt Fund for Education to benefit the Delaware Center for Horticulture (DCH) to support urban farming and ag literacy in Wilmington. The proposal, submitted by the Farm Bureau on behalf of DCH, details the creation of raised beds in the back of DCH’s demonstration garden, planted with crops suitable for urban landscapes. DCH has also asked for funding from other sources to support the endeavor, which will ultimately afford the organization the opportunity to “create new adult and family education programs on how to grow your own food,” according to the grant application.
