Scholarships

Applying for Scholarship

We try to keep costs of our classes as low as possible, but we realize fees may still be out of reach of some budgets. We offer scholarships to in-need residents.

If you are interested in receiving a scholarship to our classes, please complete the Backyard Abundance Scholarship Application. We accept applications on an ongoing basis. Applications are reviewed by committee.

We ask that scholarship recipients commit to volunteering 1-10 hours of service helping with community resiliency-building projects. This can include garden help, landscape design, writing articles, and pre-workshop set up. You can include volunteering you are already doing for another organization. We can help you find these opportunities if needed.

Funding a Scholarship

Currently, all of our scholarships are made possible through generous donations from members in our community. If you would like to help an in-need person attend a Backyard Abundance class, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Backyard Abundance Scholarship Fund.

Classes typically cost $25 or $100, but any amount is welcome.

Please indicate on the donation form or in the secure area of PayPal that your donation should go toward scholarships.
