About the Selection Process
Each year, host organizations have limited funding to accept new schools into the Little Green Thumbs
program. Therefore, unfortunately, not all teachers who apply will be selected to participate. The selection committee takes into consideration the location and demonstrated need of your school as well as your personal learning philosophy, plans for incorporating the garden into learning, and connection to social & ecological principles. The committee applies a point-based rubric based on these criteria to select applicants. Teachers may apply year-to-year.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the LGT program, our growth has outpaced allocated funding. At this time, owe are seeking additional sponsors. We are optimistic and look forward to continued expansion in the coming years!
