This year’s VSGP Grants Program received over 395 grant entries from 185 schools/kindergartens across Victoria. The standard of entries was extremely high and it was not an easy task for our committee to pick the winners.
Of the 69 successful grant recipients, 52 will receive nursery vouchers worth $500 or $1,000, and 17 will receive garden products to the value of $500 – $4,500 to include in their garden projects.
The purpose of the VSGP Grants program is to provide seed funding to schools/kindergartens to establish new gardens or repair existing gardens. Establishing and/or expanding the green environment, not only improves the aesthetic appearance but can make an exciting outside learning environment with greater benefits to student health and well-being. Involving students in the process helps them to take ownership, pride and care of the space, while providing a connection to nature.
We would like to thank all our Grant sponsors for providing the successful schools with the opportunity to undertake their proposed garden projects and make their grounds greener.
