money for school gardens

Dear Nancy,
Try The Captain Planet Foundation.  I'm sure you could find it on the web if 
you did a simple search.  Their web page has all the info you need to know.  
They fund environmental projects and I know they have funded school garden 
projects.  Of course, there's always National Gardening Assoc.  However, try 
asking local businesses for their support in donating materials.  People can 
be very generous if they know it's for a good cause like a school garden!
Good Luck, Lynn Gregor

>My name is Sandra Barr. I live in a primarily professional residential

>I have been taking courses in the Horticulture program at a local Junior
>College for two years. I have applied for the local Master Gardener program
>to begin this Fall. This semester I have been working one day a week (this
>week it becomes two days a week) at a Community Garden in another town
>within driving range. This garden has been open for three years and I have
>learned a tremendous amount working there with their director, Amanda Van
>I am now to the point where I need to start making some steps on paper to
>the Addison officials and start the ball rolling. One year ago, I had reason
>to speak to the head of Addison Parks and Recreation and I brought up the
>Garden idea. He did express interest as well as mentioning that there was
>unallocated park land still available.
>Where do I go from here. Can you help me with some sort of direction or
>guidance. I am a member of ACGA as of last week and have already downloaded
>much of your online material. Please send me anything you might have that
>may be helpful.
>Thank you for your help and thank you for your time and interest in working

>Conference Theme:  How to Measure Quality-of-Life in Diverse Populations.
>Location/Dates:  Wyndham Hotel, Washington, DC, November 29th to December

>especially when effective design enhances the benefits that green spaces,
>residential landscapes and cared-for natural resources bring to communities.
>Measurement of quality-of-life has historically focused on areas such as
>economic well-being or patient health.  Limited research has been directed
