School Garden Grants

School Food Matters has partnered with Whole Kids Foundation to provide School Garden Grants for schools in the two Food Flagship boroughs of Lambeth and Croydon.

This fund is now closed.

Our judging panel meets in February and all applicants will be informed of the outcome by February half term.

Whole Kids Foundation is offering a total of £30,000 in small grants of up to £2,000 to schools to create new edible gardens or to enhance existing ones within the schools grounds. 

The School Garden Grants are open to:

  • all schools in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Croydon, including schools that applied successfully or unsuccessfully to 2015/16 School Garden Grants programme
  • applications for grants up to £2,000


Applications must be submitted by 5pm on 31st December 2016. 

Please don’t delay as the grant programme will close on that date or when we have received 75 applications - whichever is sooner.
