The Herb Society of America will select ten (10) schools/classrooms to receive $200 "Seed Money" to establish an herb garden (indoor or outdoor).

Schoolyard Garden Grant Program

October 18, 2016
Village Garden Club of La Jolla. Do you remember when you first watered a flower; watched a hummingbird or a tiny bug; stamped through a puddle or planted your first seedling? The opportunity to plant and watch a flower grow, or pick a carrot to bring to the table, brings the wonder of nature closer to children at school. The Schoolyard Gardening Grants program is dedicated to spreading this wonder to as many schools as it can reach. Schools provide the place and time for students to develop these skills. From initial planning, to construction, to working the ground, to planting, watering and tending their crops, to harvesting flowers and food for the table, these young gardeners are learning the value of nurturing the environment in which we all share. Since 2004 when Ruth Barnett founded the program, VGCLJ has promoted and supported an increasing number of schools in the city and county of San Diego. To date, we have reached over 100 schools with over $78,400 in funds mostly from club members. Last year the SGGP awarded 20 grants totaling $8400 including $1000 to San Diego Unified School Districts “Garden to Café” Program.
