The deadline of Saturday, October 30th is quickly approaching for our program. Just five years ago, while celebrating our 70th Anniversary and after thousands of donations to local school and Life Lab gardens, we recognized a broader need and founded our School Garden Bed Grant Program. We have awarded ten School Garden Bed grants annually to local schools where we do business for a total of 50 to date.
Every year in the early fall, eligible schools within 25 miles of a Big Creek Lumber location that did not receive a Garden Bed Grant the prior year (schools may receive one every other year) and have a plan in place to continue the garden program are encouraged to apply. All eligible applications will be placed in a drawing and ten winners will be selected at random, two per yard. Garden bed deliveries take place every spring just in time to plant spring gardens at the school.
We invite you to apply!
