At Monday's Town Council meeting, Coventry resident Gail Tatangelo announced to the public that they will soon be able to vote for Coventry's Community Garden in a contest that could win the project a $4,000 grant.
Tatangelo has been organizing and running the garden since she asked Council members four years ago to use a piece of town land to get started.
"It was a dream of mine," she said of the garden that supplies food to local families in need. "It is the community coming together to help the community."
The contest, run by Organic Magazine, has allowed Coventry's garden to be one of 15 across the country to be nominated for the grant. Funded by DeLoach Vineyards, it will present checks totaling $20,000 to five community gardens that have a large impact on their communities.
According to Tatangelo, if the garden wins the grant, it will be used to build a new shed and purchase supplies. The garden began in front of the and has now branched out to a new 180 sq. ft. extension behind - a location that will be used by students as part of their science curriculum.
