VSGA grant applications closed on 29th April with over 300 applications received from 230 schools across Victoria.
Since the Grant program began in 2014 entry numbers have increased each year, proving that schools want to undertake garden projects but sadly lack the funds to undertake improvements, make overs or incorporate new gardens in their grounds.
Over the last month the VSGA has had the difficult task of assessing schools for the 48 grants that were available. The Maxicrop – Edible Garden Grant was once again the most popular category with 106 applications received, with Flemings Orchard Grant and Independent Schools Victoria – Sensory Grant also receiving high entry numbers.
The VSGA would like to thank all schools who applied for a grant. The submissions were very impressive and it was extremely difficult selecting the successful recipients, especially with an increase in the number of entries. We hope those unsuccessful schools are not discouraged and try again next year.
