The mission of the Ag in the Classroom Grant is to increase the knowledge and appreciation of agriculture in the lives of students living in Fayette County. Since spring of 2014 Fayette County Farm Bureau has offered an opportunity for local educators to apply for a school garden grant geared towards gardens that promote healthy eating in connection with agricultural education. This year we have RENAMED this grant to the Ag in the Classroom Grant! This allows educators from Pre-K – 12 to have activities beyond gardening but still educating students about the importance of agriculture in different sectors.
Educators in Fayette County Public Schools are encouraged to submit applications for garden supplies by November 1, 2022 to be considered for up to $500. The winner(s) of the grant will be announced November 30, 2022.
Please email applications to:
Note: Grant funds will only be applied to funds spent for the 2022-2023 school year. Checks will only be paid to the school, not an individual. Completed applications must be submitted to Carrie McIntosh by November 1, 2021. If awarded the school will be required to submit a photo(s) of the garden/ project and a representative may visit the project site, if applicable.
