Innovative Ways to Fund Your School Garden

  • John Fisher, Director of Programs and Partnerships, Life Lab

  • Annie Silverman, Project Manager

  • Moderator: Angie Corwin, North Coast Regional Manager, CAFF

There is no "one way" to fund school gardens, there are hundreds! During this session John and Annie will share examples of how school gardens raise funds. From small budget grants and garden-based fundraisers, to policy that funds district wide programs, a wide array of funding models will be shared. Participants will leave with new ideas of where to search for funds and inspiration for finding new sources of support for their garden programs.
