(Victor Valley) – Incredible Edible Community Garden (IECG), in partnership with CAL FIRE, is offering $5,000, $10,000, and $20,000 grants along with specialized technical assistance to San Bernardino County nonprofits, municipalities, school and special districts, and organizations as part of their Neighborhood Grows program.
The purpose of the Neighborhood Grows minigrants program is to restore the local environment and improve regional air quality through the planting of large canopy, climate appropriate trees. The projects supported by the program will build San Bernardino County’s capacity to measure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

It is the intent of IECG to equip and position San Bernardino County as the leader in transitioning to and thriving within a green economy while simultaneously benefiting local businesses in the transportation and logistics industries.
