The Basehor PRIDE Community Garden is one of 24 garden projects across the state to receive a $4,800 grant.

The grant was awarded by the Kansas Community Gardens Project, an initiative of the Kansas Health Foundation and Kansas State University Research and Extension. In the first of three planned years for the project, the Basehor garden was chosen as part of a competitive application process.

The funding will go toward additional tools, equipment and plants, along with a storage shed. The garden, at Basehor City Park, opened this spring for its first growing season.
