SCHOOL GARDEN GRANTS 2020 ARE NOW OPEN

25 November 2019

This year, we are supporting schools in the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Brent, Enfield, Islington, Camden and Greenwich.

Thanks to Whole Kids Foundation, we have a grant fund of £55,000 and schools can apply for a grant up to £2,000. To apply for a school garden grant, please read the FAQs and Application Guidelines and then download an application form.

Please send your completed application form with at least one photograph of the proposed school garden space to grants@schoolfoodmatters.org by Friday 10 January 2020. The fund will close once we have received 80 applications, so we recommend submitting your application early.

Please forward this to any schools within the selected London boroughs that might be interested in this opportunity.
