School Grants & Greenhouses
Gardening is a valuable tool for children of all ages. Learning about plants, how things grow and how to nurture and care for living organisms. Caring for plants introduces
many other topics such as the role insects play and the importance of light, water and maintenance. Gardening has been known to also improves children’s environmental attitudes, their social skills and nutritional attitudes. The National Gardening Association has provided grant funding for the past 29 years to support youth garden programs. They have awarded over 9,000 grants throughout the years and provided beneficial education to our nation’s children. The benefits from school gardens reach everyone including the parents, teachers and administrators. To view a list of grants available and valuable resources visit this website.
Sunglo has been a proud resource for school greenhouses for many years. Providing a covered, safe area for children to learn about gardening and all the beautiful life lessons along with it. Working with faculty and administrative staff to achieve their horticultural goals has been a humbling experience for all of us here at Sunglo and we feel honored to be apart of it. We also offer an educational discount to help relieve some of the financial stress. Our office team and warehouse/assembly team are knowledgeable and will see your project through to the finish. From the time the greenhouse is ordered we are here to answer any questions from shipping to construction. We can give you advice on permitting, the foundation and which size would benefit your school. Replacement parts are always available too, so in the future just give us a call! If you or someone you know is interested in a school greenhouse please contact us with any questions or for a free quote.
