Funding Opportunities for AquaGrove Growers

Are you a school or organization that is looking for funding to start your own AquaGrove garden?  If so, we have identified a couple of funding opportunities that can help you get started on your own sustainability and aquaponics program.

While eligibility requirements and grant amounts vary for each source, these funding opportunities are worth reviewing to see if you qualify for financial support to fund a new or even ongoing aquaponics programs.  From acquiring an AquaGrove to investing in additional plants and fish, growing gardens can benefit from a boost to the budget, especially when they are a part of integrated learning programs that are benefiting students, communities and learners of all ages and stages.

Here are a few upcoming funding opportunities that range from $3,000 to $5,000 in support and may be just what your garden and program need to take the next steps in sustainability:

Nature’s Path – Gardens for Good Program

Grants of $5,000 will be awarded to support nonprofit, organically-grown community garden projects that advance change in local communities. This year, twenty-one garden projects will be awarded a grant.  Eligible applicants include nonprofit corporations registered to do business as a domestic nonprofit corporation in the United States (exclusions apply), as well as registered Canadian charities and not-for-profit organizations (excluding those based in the province of Quebec).  See Nature’s Path website for complete program guidelines and instructions.

Deadline: March 24, 2021

Whole Kids Foundation – School Garden Grant Program

Grants of $3,000 are available to help fund garden projects at public and private K-12 schools in the United States and Canada.  Through the Garden Grant program, schools and nonprofit organizations are able to transform outdoor spaces into powerful hands-on learning gardens that connect kids with food, spark their curiosity and support classroom curriculum.
