Grants for Gardens
Stadler Nurseries is offering $500 gift cards to provide schools with plants and gardening supplies for garden and landscaping projects. Because we also offer schools a 20% discount, the gift cards can actually purchase $600 worth of plants and merchandise. The gift card can be used all at once or in portions for up to 4 years. We will select 2 schools in Frederick and Montgomery Counties in Maryland and Prince William County in Virginia, to receive these grants.
Ideas to Consider for Garden Projects:
|Entrance Planting||Bird Garden||Container Garden|
|Native Garden||Butterfly Garden||Courtyard Planting|
|Tree Plantings||Natural Fencing||Reading Garden|
All schools applying for grants should have sufficient support from the school community and the school administration to ensure implementation and maintenance of the project.
Special consideration will be given to those proposals that demonstrate educational opportunities both in the installation of the plan and in the utilization of the end product.
Applications must be received by February 28, 2017 for the 2017 Grant Program.
All applying schools will be notified once the selection process is complete. Grant recipients will be contacted soon thereafter. Applicants not selected may reapply the following semester. Two schools from each county will be chosen.
Stadler Nurseries is very pleased to be able to participate in contributing towards these exciting projects, all of which include students, faculty and the community working together to bring beauty and education through gardening to their schools.
