Hey I don't really know how to work this but I am trying to start a gardening club at my high school. I heard that sometimes the NGA gives a little funding to help schools start gardening clubs. Also if anybody has some extra stuff (tools, seeds,extra greenhouse) lying around feel free to tree mail me. Would really appreciate if someone could help me with this.

It has been a few years since NGA put together any grant programs for school or community gardens. We may do it again in the future but for now, it's not something we're doing.

Try going to the board of education and make a pitch to them, show how integrating the club into your studies, math, science would work. Do you have any garden clubs within your community that you could talk with that may assist you in your endeavor?
