As a recipient from the estate of Donald Samull, The Herb Society of America established an herb garden grant for elementary school classes grades 3 through 6. These grants ensure that the use of herbs in teaching elementary school students will continue for years to come, a tradition Mr. Samull — an elementary school teacher — used in his classroom to engage and inspire his 3rd–6th grade students.
Public and/or private 3rd through 6th grade teachers, with classes of a minimum of fifteen (15) students may apply for an herb garden grant. For the 2019-20 grant cycle, The Herb Society of America will select ten (10) schools/classrooms to receive $200 to establish an herb garden. The funds may be used for supplies such as soil, plant trays, containers, child or youth sized tools, etc. The school may need to seek additional funding and support from other sources.
Awards will be announced December 2, 2019
