Revitalization of C Street Community Gardens

APF 2010 Challenge Grant

C Street Community Garden Users


Revitalization lead by Tracy Fischbach and her family


A project team comprised of the grantees along with community members from several interested nonprofit and civic organizations collaborated on the design and ideas for improvements to the C Street community gardens. The group raised $10,000 from Cook Inlet Housing Authority through a nearby renovation project as CIHA was also interested in the health of the community. In the garden itself, new, taller fences were installed, and the paths between the plots were redone.

Total cash raised: $10,000; volunteer labor and in-kind contribution value: $8,138; total match value: $18,138

Total Project Value Including Rasmuson Foundation Grant: $38,138
