Slow Food USA is excited to launch its Plant a Seed campaign for Spring 2018. This year, they are focusing on the Three Sisters — bean, corn and squash — with varieties on the Ark of Taste.
They are offering free kits to the first 300 schools in need. Use promo code plantschoolfree if you would like a kit but cannot afford to pay. Once those run out, or if you have the budget to pay, you can use plantschoolhalf for a 50% discount. If you're not using this for a school garden, they ask that you pay full price.
The Water-Wise Mini Grant Program is a collaboration between SGN and Harmony Farm Supply. Eligible SGN affiliate schools will receive a free irrigation design, installation support and up to $400 in funding for a drip irrigation system. Irrigation systems will include battery operated timers, electric anti-siphon valves and a shut off valve to isolate the system.

SGN's Facebook group is the new location of our popular discussion forum where gardeners and educators can exchange information, share the latest news, ideas, events, jobs, curriculum and more related to school gardens.
The SGN Affiliate program for Sonoma County schools qualifies you for discounts at Harmony Farm Supply & Nursery in Sebastopol. You will receive a quarterly newsletter and early announcements of free seeds, plants and other resources. SGN will be partnering with additional local retailers in the near future.
