SCHOLARSHIPS & GRANTS

- CELEBRATING 100 YEARS -

Floretum offers grants to Edmonds teachers for school gardens and
scholarships for students. The proceeds come from our annual plant sale and boutique held the first saturday in May. Members donate perennials, bulbs, herbs, annuals, small trees and shrubs, container gardens and other garden-related items to sell to the public.

Grants for Edmonds teachers for school gardens 

Application Guidelines
Who may apply
Usage of Funds

Funds may be used for development of, or ongoing support for school gardens, including materials for garden beds, sheds, paths, or watering systems; tools, seeds, plants, soil, mulch; instructional materials; and labor.

Application Period

Any teacher who has a project ready may contact us anytime. Awards will be paid directly to the school principal.

Amount of Funds

Initial grant up to $500; further funding depends on the project’s outcome and plans for sustainability and ongoing success. Unused funds must be returned to Floretum after one year, unless approved for a continuing project.

Reporting

The Grant recipients must submit a report following the project.  This should include details about students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community partners involved and objectives achieved (or not achieved). We encourage stories and photos, which will not be made public without permission.

Floretum’s School Garden Grants are meant to support teachers, parents, students, and administrators in developing gardens on school property to enhance student learning.

Any Edmonds School District administrator, teacher, or designated representative.  A school administrator must sign off on the project. Schools with existing gardens may also apply.
