Each year the SGF awards grants for projects run by our members in conjunction with schools and youth groups designed to further the interest of children and young people in gardening.
The projects are very varied but always involve young people in practical horticulture. Their enthusiasm for planting and growing is clearly evident and we hope the pride they show in their completed projects might establish a long term interest in the future.
2015 / 2016
Reports from last year’s recipients are at –
- Dalgety Bay Horticultural Society
- Saltoun Primary and Nursery Planting Project
- Dollar Horticultural Society
2016 / 2017
I am pleased to say that the Council will be offering grants of up to £100 again this year and if your club is a member of the SGF, we hope that you will think about applying for one. Projects need not be ambitious as long as they focus on involving children and young people in some practical gardening and involve the member club alongside the youth group in planning and implementing the work.
The reports from last year will give you an idea of what we are looking for. Another idea that’s not been used before for a grant application, might be to enter a pallet garden in the competition at Gardening Scotland and details of this event are at https://sgforum.wordpress.com/next-pallet-garden-competition/ .
The grant application form is below and we do hope you will think about applying by post or email before the closing date which is Monday 29th February. Good luck.
