Growing things with kids is good for the kids and good for the planet.

We’re pleased to announce our Grant Program specifically for homeschool families and Cooperatives. The beginning of each month, we will contact a winner from the previous month’s applicants.

Applications will be judged on the basis of educational impact, scientific rigor and scope, cost, and feasibility. Grants do not have to involve seed balls.

The following  materials are available for grant winners.

  • Seed Balls
  • Guerrilla Droppings
  • Seed Ball Matrix
  • Red Clay Powder
  • Wildflower seeds native to your area
  • Herb and Vegetable Seeds
  • Coco coir
