Any school in the Philadelphia county is eligible to apply for Botanography's Garden Classroom Grants, regardless of grade level and type of school. Included in the grant is funding for garden materials, a Botanography workshop, and access to Botanography's curriculum and garden community.
$500 - 1000
Funds for garden materials to improve and/or establish garden classrooms. Money can be put towards items for rainwater collection, soil, compost and composting, plants, seeds, containers, tools, and other materials to build raised or container planting beds.
Botanography will plan and host a workshop during the school year for teachers or students, based on grant recipient's needs and interests.
Grant recipients will receive Botanography's STEAM lesson plans in order to implement garden classroom curriculum based on art, botany, ecology, literacy, and community.
Recipients will participate in Botanography's Exquisite Garden project. The project will connect teachers and schools in Philadelphia and beyond as a community of gardeners and celebrate student work in the garden, writing, and artwork. The final product will be a student-led e-Book which displays students' findings using Botangraphy's curriculum.
Recipients will also be enrolled in Pennsylvania Horticulture Society "Green City Teachers" or "Garden Tenders" training programs. These programs focus on physical aspects of gardens and gardening.
