School Garden Grants provide schools with funding to transform lifeless outdoor spaces into thriving gardens where students can grow fresh fruit and vegetables.
The School Garden Grant programme, kindly funded by Whole Kids Foundation, helps create and develop school gardens across London.
For 2024, we have a total grant fund of £80,000, and each school can apply for up to £2,000. This year, we are supporting schools in the London boroughs of Brent, Bromley, Hackney, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Westminster.
Applications for 2024 have now closed.
New for 2024
This year, School Food Matters will be offering additional support for our Garden Grant schools so that they can make the most of their new growing spaces. Successful schools will have the chance to apply for the following:
Gardening training courses for teachers
A gardening session for up to 30 students with an SFM gardener to show how your new school garden can be put to best use.
This is part of our Food education work.
We run fully funded food education programmes for children, young people and teachers to ensure every child understands the impact of the food they eat on their health and the environment, and has the food skills to live a healthy life
