There are many perks to implementing a school gardening or greenhouse program, including giving children the opportunity to design, plant and maintain a garden. In addition, children learn about the science behind greenhouse development, nutrition and the benefits of sharing food. To obtain financial assistance with creating a greenhouse project at school, there are several grant sources that strive to support educational gardening programs.

Welch's Harvest Grants

Welch's, in partnership with Scholastic, provide grant funding to schools and non-profit organisations that plan to create a hands-on gardening program for youth. Funding is awarded to organisations that promote healthy eating, inquiry-based learning, self confidence, team work and leadership among children. Typically, 100 grants are awarded nationwide, and garden packages with values ranging from £162 to £650 are awarded. Garden packages are comprised of a variety of necessary tools, seeds and educational material. The grant contest begins in October of each year, and an online application can be found on the Scholastic website.
