Gateway Greening recognizes that it may be a challenge to purchase liability insurance on a individual basis, and when it is found, it may be cost prohibitive for the group or institution to do so. To meet this need, Gateway Greening has worked with our insurance company to put together an insurance pool, where multiple individual garden projects can buy into a shared policy at annual cost of $100. The rate is subject to change based on the size and number of garden projects participating.
Gateway Greening Network Gardens
To be eligible, a garden must have been evaluated and approved by Gateway Greening’s Community Garden Program, meeting the community garden criteria, as outlined below:
The community garden is located on St. Louis Development Corporation, Land Clearance for Redevelopment or, Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) property.
Must be an in-network Gateway Greening Garden.
Produce from the garden is used to benefit the community and is not sold for net financial gain, except that sales of the produce may be used to cover the essential costs of the community garden.
At least ten people agree to tend the garden.
The garden project is determined to be a sustainable, long-term project that benefits the surrounding community.
In addition to this application, a site visit with a Gateway Greening staff member is required.
