Little Seeds Pollinator Pals Grant

The Little Seeds Pollinator Pals Grant presented by Little Seeds and KidsGardening is designed to support youth garden programs interested in preserving and creating pollinator habitats to help rebuild declining pollinator populations. In 2022, twenty programs will be awarded checks of $500 to support the development of new and expansion of existing pollinator gardens.

Eligibility

Any nonprofit organization, school, university, government entity, or tax-exempt organization like religious organizations and Tribal governments in the United States and US Territories serving at least 15 youth is eligible to apply. Programs must be planning a new or expanding an existing youth garden designed to teach about the importance of pollinators.

Previous winners of the Little Seeds Pollinator Pals Grant are not eligible.

We prioritize the following when selecting winners…

Beyond the best fit with the Little Seeds Pollinator Pals Grant focus on pollinator gardens, the selection of winners is prioritized based on demonstrated need and program impact. KidsGardening considers a variety of factors when determining need, including:

Economic and Demographic Factors: Does the program exist within or engage a community that is under-resourced? Is program leadership representative of youth participating in the program?
Program Funding and Support: Does the program have limited access to resources and/or consistent monetary support, including recent grant funding?
Impact: Will grant funding expand learning opportunities for program participants? Does the intended impact of the program reflect the needs of the community?
