Farm to School BC Grants

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. 

 

Farm to School BC Start-Up Grants

Start-up Grants

Amount: Up to $3,000

Deadline: Closed for 2021. Our next granting cycle opens in fall 2022. 

Start-Up Grants are the largest grant offered by Farm to School BC and are ideally suited for school communities with a clear vision for their farm to school project and who have a team of supportive stakeholders in place.

Projects may include building garden beds, foraging local food, growing indigenous plant gardens, small-scale farms, indoor growing spaces, and much more. For more farm to school program ideas, click here.

You may apply for a maximum of $3,000 to launch your Farm to School BC project. The amount granted will be dependent on the scope of the proposed program.

Farm to School BC Scale-Up Grants

Scale-up Grants

Amount: Up to $1,000

Deadline: Closed for 2021. Our next granting cycle opens in fall 2022. 

Farm to School BC Scale-Up Grants are for schools with existing farm to school programs that want to build upon their farm to school vision. These are the smaller of the two grants offered by Farm to School BC and are ideal for schools that received a Farm to School BC Start-Up Grant in the past and would like additional support to sustain their projects.

Projects may include foraging local food, cooking activities, farm field trips, indoor growing spaces, and much more. For more farm to school program ideas, click here.
