"Budding Botanist", 2021-22 edition

"Budding Botanist", 2021-22 edition


Klorane Botanical Foundation is pleased to support the fifth edition of Budding Botanist Grant. Designed by KidsGardening, this national contest is a great opportunity for American schools to create a school garden.

New criteria from the edition 2021-22

Given the limitations posed by distance and hybrid learning options, applications that propose projects focused on the creation of virtual garden-based learning opportunities or take home gardening kits to better serve students engaged in remote learning are also encouraged and accepted. 


The prize

Each grant recipient will receive $1,000 to spend on the materials needed to install a new or expand an existing school garden. 

This initiative is a way to teach youngest citizens to respect their world and inspire them to take care of the life they discover in their local ecosystems.


The 18 winners of the 2022 edition

This year, 181 schools applied with very beautiful and varied school garden projects!
Here is the list of the lucky winners!
