Small Farms Resources at NC A&T State University

Plant on it

leaf_iconThe American Floral Endowment has a program that awards grants for projects that identify or improve educational opportunities for young people that has a June 1 application deadline. Although preference will be given to programs that are national in scope, applications will be accepted from state-level or community-based organizations with proposals for accelerating workforce development through student recruitment into floriculture or horticultural science programs. Among the American Floral Endowment’s current areas of interest are educational program and curriculum enhancements in plant breeding and propagation technologies, and greenhouse design and engineering. Previous grants have ranged from $500 to $10,000. Since it was established in 1961, the American Floral Endowment has distributed more than $1.2 million in educational grants.
