ITEM TITLE

Title

*Request from the Stockton Community for a Community Garden on County-owned Property off Canaan Road in Stockton

Body

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION

Recommendation

Mr. Mitchell Nye is requesting to use a portion of the County-owned property off Canaan Road in Stockton, Alabama, to have a community garden for the At-Ease Veteran Therapy Farming Project Program for veterans in Baldwin County.  The property is currently being leased from the County by Mr. Frank Bryars for cattle and livestock. 

 

Mr. Nye has secured $5,900.00 in grant monies from the Gulf Coast Resource, Conservation and Development Council to fund the purchase and installation of a well that would be used for irrigation in the garden, which would eliminate the need to use city water.  The grant expires August 1, 2021.  Mr. Nye is also seeking a grant through Baldwin EMC to run power to the well.
