GIY are delighted to announce the launch of Community Classrooms 2020, a new campaign aimed at partnerships between community groups and primary schools who have access to a new, developing or established community/school garden.
Supported by the Tomar Trust, the Community Classrooms initiative aims to establish, support and fund a network of 30 community gardens around Ireland over the next three years that directly engage with primary schools and provide outdoor, living classrooms for pupils, staff and community members.
Each successful Community Classroom will receive:
Development fund of €3,500 to build and run a Community Classroom
School garden growing plan and associated curriculum resources
Applications are now open and will close on Fri 27 March 2020. But before you apply please read the application criteria to ensure you meet the requirements.
