If your program focuses on local beautification efforts or gardening and ecology, the Wild Ones Seeds for Education program has a creative way to fund your projects! Your program could be awarded up to $500 to start a garden or wildlife habitat for native plants and animals in your local school. This project is a great way to teach students of the wonders of gardening and ecology—important material often overlooked during in-class time.
The Seeds for Education grant is designed to be used for projects that tackle three essential criteria:
Grant Name: The Wild Ones Seeds for Education
Description: $500 cash award
Eligibility requirements: U.S. schools, nature centers, and other non-profit places of learning from preschool through high school, including houses of worship

Application packages must include organization contact information, contact information for project coordinator, and a detailed project description including a budget proposal, proposed site description, educational use of area, and project preparation details.

Tip: Seeds for Education places a strong emphasis on hands-on learning and working to promote native habitat environments. Different criteria of habitats can be found on their website.
