A frequent question is,
Do you have scholarships?
Many of the people who are interested in gardening are on a tight budget.
We can’t really reduce the costs. We already give to each participant, $400 worth of garden goodies, consultation and other benefits, in addition to 18 hours of “veducation”, with garden experts like Donna Balzer and Chelsie Anderson. (See our experts page).
Our early bird tickets cost $400 each (until April 1). The value is tremendous!
Some of our partners asked how they can send some of their staff.
Some of our garden friends would like to share their abundance with new gardeners.
So we developed a “scholarship” program. See our Scholarship page for full details.
Here’s how it will work:
Grow Food Calgary will welcome any donations to their “scholarship fund”, which is designed solely to pay for Grow Food Calgary education sessions.
There are three partner categories, Ladybug, Butterfly, and Honeybee. See our Scholarship page for details on the levels.
By donating one free ticket to the scholarship fund, Grow Food Calgary is the first Scholarship partner at the Ladybug level.
Donations may be designated to certain persons, if desired, or put into the general fund.
The fund will pay for the tickets of those designated persons.
All other donations to the fund will go towards other, non-designated applicants.
Grow Food Calgary will accept applications for scholarships. Email us with Grow Food Calgary Scholarships in the subject line.
Prior to our first session, based on the funds in the scholarship pool, we’ll select x scholarship recipients.
