Victorian School Garden Awards – Grants Program
26 June 2020, 5pm
In 2014 the VSGP introduced a new Grants Program designed to provide seed funding to schools to establish new gardens in their schools. It is the VSGA’s belief that all schools should be encouraged to consider their grounds and outdoor learning as an important part of their student’s education.
Gardens make interesting and involving outdoor classrooms. By establishing and/or expanding the green environment in schools (no matter what the size whether it is a vertical garden in a small space or a grand project of the entire school grounds) not only improves the aesthetic appearance but can make an exciting outside learning environment with greater benefits of student health and wellbeing.
The Grants program has over $40,000 worth of nursery vouchers or products to be won. There are 13 different categories you can apply for, and all you need to do is simply answer five questions to be in the running.
The VSGP Grants Program is open to all State Government, Catholic and Independents schools across Victoria.
