2023 Seeds for Education Online Application

The Lorrie Otto Seeds for Education grant program (SFE) advances Wild Ones’ mission to spread awareness of the benefits of using native plants by providing funding for native plants and native seeds for projects that engage youth (preschool to high school) directly in planning, planting and caring for native plant gardens. The 2023 grant application will open on July 15th; a more exact timeframe for submitting applications will be released shortly. If you are new to native plants, please email us at [email protected] for clarification or assistance with the application.

**Please Note: The SFE grant application is a web-based form that does not allow the saving of drafts.** Applications must be completed in one session. Applicants are strongly encouraged to compose and save their responses ahead of time in a word processor, and paste their answers into the web-based form when finalized. A worksheet of application questions can be downloaded here. Following this process will ensure your responses are not lost if your browser unexpectedly times out or quits during the completion of the form.
