SFE Grant Applications Due

Posted by & filed under Chapter Happenings!, Landscaping with Native Plants, Pollinators, SFE Grants.

The Wild Ones Lorrie Otto Seeds for Education Grant Program applications are due October 15th so if you’re a non-profit organization that is planning to develop an outdoor learning center using native plants and you’re looking for funding, consider applying for this grant. Funds can only be used for plants and seeds, but we’ll find a Nursery Partner to help you with not only advice, but to also possibly provide seeds and plants at a discount.

If you need some help in getting started with your outdoor learning habitat, you’ll find loads of information on the Wild Ones website about native plants and natural landscaping. If you are located near one of our Wild Ones chapters, contact them for some mentoring assistance. They’ll be happy to assist you in developing your learning center.

Lastly, although Wild Ones does not produce curriculum materials, we do have our Next Generation series of articles from our Wild Ones Journal that would be helpful in developing activities related to your outdoor learning center. You’ll find them informative.

    Are local government Divisions of Parks and Neighborhoods that serve youth through outdoor programs such as community gardens, walking and nature trails eligible to apply for the SFE grant?

      Yes you are eligible to apply. One recommendation that I can give you is to try and involve kids in your project. Projects that include kids throughout the planning, planting, and outdoor work have more of a chance to be funded.

    Hello Wild Ones,
    My name is Yaniv Korman and I am a student at College of the Atlantic. I am interested in creating an edible, native, and low maintenance garden in my college campus. I plants in the garden will be used by college students, native pollinators, and the town’s community. I would like to know if your grants are also given to college students?

      Hello Yaniv Korman,

      Yes, you can apply for a grant. To have a better chance of getting a grant, your garden must contain all native plants that are native to the area. If you would like advice on what plants to select, go to our website, click the Connect tab and select Wild Ones Chapters. Look for one that is near you.
