Youth Pollinator Garden Grant

Youth Pollinator Garden Grant

As part of the Great Falls Garden Club’s 80th anniversary celebration, the Garden Club is sponsoring a $150.00 Youth Pollinator  Garden Grant to be awarded to a child ages 9 - 14 who lives in the 22066  Zip Code. 

Currently the Great Falls Garden Club maintains two garden sites at  the Great Falls Library and one garden, The Blue Star Memorial Garden, at  the Village Center in Great Falls. One garden at the library lines the  walkway along the library’s path and the other is the Meadow visible from  Georgetown Pike. Beyond their aesthetics, the gardens serve to attract  many pollinators when in bloom. 

To further the idea of planting gardens for pollinators like birds, bees  and butterflies, the Garden Club hopes to encourage the idea of creating  these kinds of gardens by offering a $150 Grant to a Great Falls youth  between the ages of 9-14 to create their own Pollinator Garden. 

All interested individuals can find information about the Grant by  visiting the Great Falls Library where there is a display with lots of helpful  resources. In addition, the Grant Application and additional information  can be found on the Club’s website 

The Grant Application must be completed by April 15, 2022. All  applications should be sent to the following address:
