My children’s school participates in Project Learning Garden. The school got a variety of gardening materials, curriculum, and training. But the neatest part was the way this project bridges to eating. Participating schools get a cooking cart that has materials and recipes to take into classrooms to prepare foods from the garden. The teachers have been so excited about using it.
Unfortunately, this grant has a very limited scope. Only schools in metro-Atlanta, Ventura, California, and LA Unified school district can apply. But since many of my readers are in metro-Altanta, and I’ve seen how great this grant is, I decided to share the information. For other folks, the Captain Planet Foundation has a variety of other grants for gardens and environmental education that are available for other parts of the country!
