Grants Total $300,000
In 1999, the California Fertilizer Foundation (CFF) contributed $8,000
to predominately urban schools in California to be used in sustaining or
establishing school gardens. To date, CFF has donated more than $300,000 to
more than 250 California schools for school garden projects.
Over the years, we have expanded our program and are now able to
annually provide 24 grants for $1,200 each to schools throughout California (12 awarded twice a year). At the end
of each year, winning schools can re-apply for a progress grant of $1,500 and a
free agricultural field trip. Through the garden program, CFF provides direct funding to California schools
for garden projects. The gardens provide an opportunity for students, teachers
and parents to truly "grow" together. For more information, please contact Mary Junqueiro at (916) 574-9744.
CFF members annually give $1,200 each to 24 California schools to grow student gardens.

A Garden in Every School
Our goal is to put a garden in every interested school. With
almost 10,000 schools in California, this is not a goal we'll reach on our
own. We're lucky to have great partners. The California School Garden Network is a group of organizations who have a shared interest in garden-based learning and are working together to teach about agriculture through the use of school gardens.
