Another possible funding source for school garden projects


Project Learning Tree (PLT) offers GreenWorks! grants up to $1,000 to schools and youth
organizations for environmental service-learning projects that link classroom learning to the real
world. Students implement an action project they help design to green their school or to improve
an aspect of their neighborhood’s environment. The projects partner students with their whole
school, local businesses and/or community organizations, and provide opportunities for student
leadership. The funds can be used to implement recycling programs at schools, conserve water
and energy, establish school gardens and outdoor classrooms, improve a forest, or restore a
natural habitat, for example. To be eligible, applicants must have attended a PLT workshop,
either in-person or online, that provides training, lesson plans, and other resources to help
integrate these projects and environmental education into your curriculum or youth programs.

Deadline: September 30, 2016
