Farm to School BC offers two types of grants: Start-Up grants of up to $3,000 and Scale-Up grants of up to $1,000. Learn more about each grant below.
Amount: Up to $3,000
Deadline: 2020/2021 grants are now closed
Start-up grants are the largest grant we offer and are designed for projects of a wider scope – ideally suited for schools with a strong team of stakeholders in place, with clear ideas and goals for your project.
Start-up grants have been historically utilized for gardening projects, however, we encourage our applicants to think outside of the box! In recent years we have seen an interest in foraged foods, indigenous plant gardens, small scale farms (for some ideas, click here), as well as indoor growing spaces. You may apply for up to a maximum of $3,000 in funding to launch your program.
Amount: Up to $1,000

Scale-up grants are the smaller of the two grants we offer and are designed for schools wanting to take their ideas to the next level. The scale-up grant is suited for schools with existing Farm to School programs, who have a desire to build upon their success and expand their vision.
Scale-up grants are up to a maximum of $1,000 and have historically been utilized for garden development. However, we encourage our applicants to think outside of the box! In recent years, we have seen an interest in foraged foods, indigenous plant gardens, cooking programs, and indoor growing spaces. Use your imagination!
