Grant Description
In-kind donations of plants and classroom resources to Florida PreK-12 teachers to establish school gardens throughout the state. Funding is intended to educate students through outdoor learning, heighten their appreciation of the state's plants and animals, and promote the use of school gardens. Teachers in both public and private schools will be given native wildflower seedlings, classroom resources, and professional guidance on garden establishment.

This Florida Wildflower Foundation grant program provides Florida native ecotype wildflower plants for school gardens throughout Florida. The goals of this program are to:

  • Increase children’s awareness and appreciation of Florida's unique flora and fauna.
  • Promote outdoor learning experiences that help students achieve state academic standards
  • Use school gardens to establish pollinator pathways of wildflowers to host bees, butterflies and other insects

Grant winners will receive personalized growing assistance and an assortment of small Florida native wildflower plants from a Florida Association of Native Nurseries' member nursery. All gardens must be planted on public or private school property with the permission of the school administrator.

To qualify for a Seedlings for Schools grant, the school must have an existing outdoor garden site free of turf and weeds. Teachers must verify adequate growing conditions and commitment for growing wildflowers. Gardens need to be prepared by grant recipients in advance of receiving wildflowers.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Public and private pre-K through grade 12 teachers may apply.
