NEA Member Benefits and Target have joined forces to offer $50,000 worth of grants to help K-12 schools go green.
As their website explains, "NEA’s Green Across America grants of up to $1,000 are available to help you implement your innovative education program, activity, lesson or event to excite students about going green, caring for the earth and creating a sustainable future."
This is the perfect opportunity to secure funding for your school garden project! To further help your school become green and sustainable, you can even incorporate a compost pile into your garden.
The formal grant applications will be available May 1st but the NEA Member Benefit's website features a sample worksheet to help you plan your program in the meantime.
So put on those thinking caps and start planning your project today!
