Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to USA K-8 teachers to incorporate agricultural projects into the classroom curriculum. Funding is intended for projects including, but not limited to, setting up a compost system for the classroom, planting an educational garden, and creating worm bins. Projects must follow organic production and handling standards from the National Organic Program. A significant percentage of grant funding will go to teachers in school districts with 50 percent or more students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program.

Project Ideas:
  • Have students set up and operate a compost system for the class. Have students learn how composting is a natural way to add nutrients that make healthy soil.
  • Grow an organic pizza garden. Have students plant and harvest vegetables to make an organic pizza.
  • Create a worm bin and raise worms with the students. Lessons around soil care and healthy soil biology.
  • Compare the look, taste, and smell of organic and conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. Have students research both farming practices and record their observations in a chart or diagram.
  • Build a chicken coop and study the process of raising organic livestock as it relates to biology and ecology.
  • Seed saving. Bring in different types of plants (or use some from your school garden) and have students save, preserve, and later plant those same seeds.
  • Choose an organic fruit or vegetable that can be picked in season and preserved for later enjoyment. Research the preservation process, and create a lesson around food preservation. Visit a local processor to see how food is preserved.
  • Have students select a commodity, state the nutritional benefits, and then research the by-products that are made from that commodity. Bring the commodities in for classroom presentations. Then set up a field trip to visit a farm that grows that commodity.
