The YGT has a history of supporting schools in various ways, and in 2007 launched the YGT for SCHOOLS scheme.
Membership of YGT for SCHOOLS
This is for Yorkshire schools with an interest in developing their grounds or a garden area, setting up, or boosting an existing gardening club.
A £10, one-off, joining fee is all that is needed for schools to join YGT for Schools. Membership entitles them to:
- Copy of YGT Newsletters.
- Advice, ideas and support to create/develop a school garden or gardening club.
- Enter any YGT for Schools projects, competitions or award schemes.
The three awards that members can currently apply for are:
YGT for Schools Gardening Club awards
Members can apply for a selection of high quality junior gardening tools.
YGT for Schools Grounds Development Awards
Members can apply for awards of £200 to help create or develop a garden area.
YGT for Schools Environmental Club awards
Members can apply for £100 of National Garden vouchers and recommended purchases to boost your environmental club.
