The Donald Samull Classroom Herb Garden Grant
The Herb Society of America, as a recipient of a bequest from the estate of Donald Samull, has established herb garden grants for teachers in grades 3 through 6. Mr. Samull was an elementary school teacher who used his love of herbs in the classroom with his 3rd-6th grade students. These grants will ensure that his tradition of using herbs with students will continue for years to come.
Public and/or private 3rd through 6th grade teachers, with classes of a minimum of 15 students may apply for an herb garden grant.
The Herb Society of America will select ten (10) schools/classrooms to receive $200 "Seed Money" to establish an herb garden (indoor or outdoor). The funds may be used for supplies such as soil, plant trays, containers, child or youth sized tools, etc. The school may need to seek additional funding and support from other sources. The Herb Society of America will provide the educational materials and herb seeds.
Application deadline for 2016-17 academic year: October 1, 2016 with awards announced December 1, 2016.
