Funding for school gardens

There are many, many funders out there interested in supporting school gardening initiatives: Evergreen, TD Friends of the name a few. Here are two calls for proposals that just came our way via the Vancouver School Food Network:

- average grant $3000
- targeting: Dance, recreation, extra-curricular, arts, music, or sports
- K-8 - public schools
- doesn't fund salaries or honorariums
- Deadline May 15th, 2013
2) World Wildlife Fund grant.  The grant program aims to support school projects that will connect students with nature, help reduce a community’s impact on the environment, increase understanding of environmental issues and solutions, stimulate environmental leadership, and inspire students and communities to take action. One of their topics of interest is local and sustainable foods (also waste reduction, biodiversity, water conservation…).
Grants of up to $5,000. Deadline is April 9, 1pm.
