School Garden Grants of $1,500 - Deadline Sept. 5
The Western Growers Foundation (WGF), in partnership with the California Department of Education, proudly offers 100 kindergarten through grade 12 school garden grants of $1,500 each. Awardees will also receive seeds and other materials to grow and sustain a fruit and vegetable garden. Edible school gardens give children the opportunity to learn where their food comes from and the importance of good nutrition. This program is made possible by a U.S. Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant, administered through the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The grants will be awarded in October 2014.
The application deadline is September 5, 2014. For more information, please visit the California School Garden Network WGF School Garden Grant Web page at http://www.csgn.org/content/2014-western-growers-foundation-california-school-garden-grant.
