Description:

Request a Grant Writer

In-kind grants of classroom resources and plants to Florida schools. Grantees will receive assistance in creating wildflower gardens. The purpose of this program is to promote outdoor learning, increase awareness of local flora and fauna, and to use school gardens to host bees, butterflies and other insects.

This Florida Wildflower Foundation grant program provides Florida native ecotype wildflower plants for school gardens throughout Florida. In a new initiative, the Foundation is working to create urban wildflower pathways to form a native habitat network of school wildflower gardens, community plantings, city parks and natural areas.

The goals of this program are to:

  • Increase children’s awareness 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 Florida native wildflower plants from a Florida Association of Native Nurseries' member nursery.
