Add greenery to your block, meet your neighbors and build community.
Sidewalk gardens beautify neighborhoods, create a natural habitat for butterflies, bees, and other pollinators, reduce storm water runoff, and increase the lifespan of adjacent trees.
WHO CAN GET A SIDEWALK GARDEN?
To be eligible for a sidewalk garden you must meet all of the following requirements:
Have concrete we can remove in one of our currently funded areas. Our funding allows us to plant gardens in newly opened garden basins, not existing ones.
Minimum 10 ft sidewalk and/or paved front yard. This is to ensure that we meet permit and accessibility requirements.
FUF installs community-based sidewalk garden projects, transforming an entire block, meaning that we must have multiple properties on the block interested in participating.
We secure funding to subsidize most of the cost. In some cases, we’ll need you to cover permit fees and a small co-pay. Make the payment here.
REQUEST A GARDEN
We’ll design your garden, take care of permitting, and manage concrete removal. On planting days we’ll coordinate volunteers and installation. All you need to do is maintain your garden after the installation is complete.
ORGANIZE YOUR BLOCK
Become your neighborhood’s block captain and assist in organizing a sidewalk garden project by getting the word out about our work, encouraging other property owners to participate in the project, and being the link between the community and us.
