Subject: CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SCHOOL GARDEN FUNDS AVAILABLE! 


 The California Department of Education has $15 million appropriated for
school gardens in public and charter schools. It is offering grants of
$2,500 and up to $5,000 (for schools with more than 1000 students) for
garden equipment, supplies, and professional development/teacher training.
Grants can be spent over three years, until June 2009.

At this time, the Department of Education anticipates that applications will
be available mid to late January 2007 on their website,
http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/, and will be processed on a first-come,
first-served basis until late March 2007.

Local Educational Agencies (i.e. districts, county offices of education,
state board of charter schools) must apply on behalf of all school sites
within the LEA. So, you need to get organized NOW! 
Contact your district or LEA if you are interested.
