    I"m a Master Gardener with the Walton Co. Ext. Service in Monroe, Ga. and a retired teacher. We are often asked to help work with schools who want to establish a garden for the purpose of teaching the children about growing their own food. Looking over your guidelines, I'm not suret what you mean when you say , "We are not able to donate our free loot". Is everything grown in the school garden to be used by the lunchroom staff in preparing meals? Are teachers expected to prepare the food? Could any children who have worked on the project take any food home to their family? I think it would be good to establish clear guidelines by adding more to your statement, rather than leave it to our imagination .After the children have learned from the experience , then I think it would be great to share the leftovers with faculty and staff. That way you would build in a little more enthusiasm for the continuation of your school garden project. Reply

    This school garden funding opportunity is not a grant program administered by Whatcom Farm-to-School. It is offered by Annie's the food company. Their intention is to support school garden programs with funding for equipment, seeds, and other needs. All questions should be answered on their website. For info about their "Free Loot" program, go to: http://www.annies.com/fun-activities/. Reply
