Apply for a $2,000 School Garden Yes to Hope Grant

Teachers, here's another amazing opportunity to get a garden to your local school.

Apply for a $2,000 School Garden Grant from the Yes to Seed Fund and Mama Hope. 

The Yes to Hope Campaign is aiming to supplement the daily lunches of 10,000 children across Africa by the end of 2012.  Each Yes to Hope school garden in Africa will be connected to a U.S. based Yes to Seed Fund school garden, where the children will be able to communicate via video chat & email.

The goal is to unite students from across the world to share in common experiences and to generate a sense of growth for the students on both sides of the globe.

So, if you'd like this opportunity to win a dream garden as well as the opportunity for your students to be able to connect with the students in Africa, then you will want to apply for this grant!

Head over to the Yes to Hope Campaign Facebook Page and tell them what a garden would mean to your school and how it will benefit from connecting with the students and teachers in Africa. Judging will be based on the most compelling and creative stories.

8 lucky schools will win a school garden grant.  Applications are due by April 30th, 2012.

Good luck!

Thanks to EE in SC
