Starting a Sharing Garden on Church Grounds

Churches can make excellent sponsors for many reasons:

Sharing Gardens are aligned with their mission to help those in need.

Many churches want to start Community Gardens (of some kind) on their land.

Churches can be a good source of volunteers.

Churches can provide a receipt for tax-deductible donations.

Many churches may be willing to extend insurance coverage to your project saving you this considerable expense.

The only disadvantage we know of is this: Some organizations do not accept grant applications from Churches.  We have found plenty of organizations that DO provide funding to churches so this may not be an important consideration in your case.
