Plant a Prairie

2022 Grant Period

Who can receive a Plant-a-Prairie Garden Kit?

Kansas teachers are eligible to apply for free Plant-A-Prairie garden kits in the spring, with plants delivered in the fall each year.    

Grant applications will be accepted March 15 through May 17, 2022 with plant delivery in mid-September 2022.

What does the Plant a Prairie Kit Contain?

The Plant-A-Prairie garden includes 32 live plants (8 species)—enough for an 8 foot by 10 foot classroom garden—along with a wildflower ID poster, planting instructions, a garden sign, links to teaching resources, and expert advice via phone or email. Kansas teachers K-12 and leaders of youth organizations are eligible to apply. The number of kits is limited.
