New Hampshire Avenue Community Gardens
From 2009 - 2013, the City of Takoma offered grants for beautifying and greening the New Hampshire Avenue Corridor. Grants funded long term improvements ranging from just a small tree to a full green space renovation.
What's Growing on the New Ave?
The New Ave Community Garden Grant encouraged the community to become involved in and to take pride and ownership of public and quasi-public areas along the corridor. Grant monies have supported landscaping and materials for starting a garden such as soil, mulch, trees, shrubs, flowers, planters, and fencing.
To date the City has provided grants for the following projects on public and private land:
