Decatur Farm to School Grant Program
The Decatur Farm to School Executive Committee members would like to invite you to apply for a Decatur Farm to School Grant! Who can apply? Teachers, Administrators, PTA members, or parent volunteers on behalf of their CSD School.
Wylde Center’s Decatur Farm to School Grant Program was initiated to support the City Schools of Decatur (CSD) in their efforts to provide farm to school experiences to their faculty and students. Up to three $500 grants will be awarded to CSD per school year. Each school may only receive one grant per year. Funds may be used for garden support, field trips, teaching experiences, and/or materials, as related to farm to school education. Your application must be received no later than October 31, 2019.
The Decatur Farm to School Executive Committee expects to select up to three grant recipients by November 15, 2019. All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision. If selected, the school is obligated to use the funds and complete the objectives by the 2019/2020 school calendar year. What funds are not used by the end of the school year will be returned back to DF2S. Decatur Farm to School requests that, upon completion of funded task(s), grantees provide a written summary, with photographs and additional documentation, as needed. Written summaries and/or any additional documentation, such as photos, may be included in a future DF2S school newsletter.
