Slow Food Solano is offering grants for school gardens to Solano County elementary, middle and high schools.
Applications will be accepted online through Jan. 22 at www.slowfoodsolano.org and funds will be dispersed in February.
Slow Food Solano awarded 17 garden grants in 2015 to schools in all of Solano County’s seven cities, and was recognized by the Fairfield-Suisun School District for its contribution in supporting schools, students and parents. Teachers have used the funds for everything from tools and seeds to fencing to woks used for cooking the garden’s bounty.
