Grant Description
Grants of up to $500 to Maryland PreK-12 teachers, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations for school gardening projects. Funding is intended for hands-on projects that may take place indoors or outdoors. The goal of the grant program is to increase the understanding and appreciation of agriculture for students, especially those living in urban areas.

School and community gardens help meet this goal through hands-on gardening and classroom activities that meet Common Core, Environmental Literacy, and NGSS standards. 

Grants will support the creation, expansion, or maintenance of LETS GRO projects. The “LETS GRO” Grant is ideal for any project that offers students direct experience with growing, harvesting, and preparing fresh foods while learning about concepts in botany, nutrition, environmental stewardship, and engineering practices.

A few examples where these concepts can be applied include outdoor school gardens, in-class plant science activities, hydroponics and vertical greenhouse projects, unique irrigation systems, nutrition and food preparation with fresh produce, and many more.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible applicants include K-12 teachers of public and private schools, nonprofit organizations, and other private institutions that have plant science education as a primary goal.

Pre-Application Information
The deadline for grant application submissions is March 24, 2023.

Funding awards will be announced by May 1, 2023.

Estimated Size of Grant
Up to $500
