    Lawn to Garden Conversion Mini Grants for nonprofit Home Owner Associations (HOAs) provides funding and incentives to convert small lawns (1,000 to 2,500 square feet) into sustainable Bay-Friendly landscapes at HOAs located in Alameda County. As people often regularly congregate at community based facilities, such as HOA common areas, projects in these public settings will provide excellent opportunities to promote lawn conversion programs. The grant goal is to lose a lawn, gain a garden, have community members participate in the conversion, and apply what they have learned to their own lawns. Technical assistance, free materials and grant funding provides support to HOAs to convert a common area lawn to a sustainable garden.
