The Vienna Parks and Gardens (MA 42)

Sponsoring of community gardens

The Vienna Parks and Gardens are currently sponsoring a community garden in every district as part of a one-time payment. In order to receive this grant, the following requirements must be fulfilled: (1) the community garden must be organized as an association, (2) the approval of the district authority must be obtained, and (3) a valid contract must be completed with the landowner. With the verification of these requirements, the sponsor can request a grant as a community garden association. If the request is approved, the association has one year to establish its garden to be eligible for a maximum € 3,600 refund. Community gardens can both be built or improved with this grant funding, and these funding options are currently available in 4 districts.
