Two young girls look at some growing plants in a labThe University of Minnesota’s Schoolyard Ecology Exploration’s garden grant program is now open for applications. Educators are invited to apply for funds to plant a new schoolyard garden or enhance the use of an existing garden. Preference will be given to graduates of our summer professional development programs who have received training in ways to use schoolyards as a resource for science teaching. We will fund non-participants as we are able. Applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm (Central Time) on Monday, December 15, 2014.

Schools can design their own garden, enhance an existing garden, or better use an existing garden through the purchase of equipment, plants, or curriculum. This proposal invites you to use your creativity and knowledge about gardening to tailor the request for your specific needs.

Other organizations provide garden grants as well. Click on this link for a list of other schoolyard garden grant opportunities.
