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.
