Are you aware of any Educational grants for a Private school to develop a
community Garden?

Thank you,
Bruce


Bruce,

I don't think an educational grant for a private, parrochial  school would be the best way to go. (You seem to be involved with an outstanding religous, educational facility, by the way, http://skaggscatholiccenter.org/ .) 

While school gardens are all over, most educational funding for them tends to go to public schools in poor areas, and that is usually not a constant source of funding.

However, raising food for the hungry is a fine thing both in real world and religious terms for our children to do. And a community garden based on this central idea ( with maybe a cutting garden to provide altar flowers for your chapels, might be a good idea.)

The Community Food Security Coaltition has many faith based groups across the country. Here is the website: CFSC .

Some UTAH projects;

My suggestion to you would be to look at your archdioceses's hunger programs, and food security programs in your state.  If the Scaggs Catholic Center were willing to set aside a  piece of land during the season ( a third or half an acre or more) for students to cultivate food for local soup kitchens and pantries, you might be able to get funding for tools, seeds.from church sources.

It's amazing, but once you have the land, and water set aside, it can be like the miracle of the loaves and the fishes.

Everbest,
