The Saul Wiseman Grants Program

We consider it a privilege to give back to our community by participating in a variety of gardening projects throughout Sacramento County. 

Since 2015, our Saul Wiseman Grants bring us in contact with a host of remarkable people actively engaged in gardening and horticultural activities.  They might be providing greater access to healthy soil and open spaces, or increasing the supply of food for the hungry in our community, or creating places of beauty in our neighborhoods.  Many are talented educators dedicated to making all manner of gardening experiences available in our schools and public places.  They are teaching the wonders and rewards of gardening through experiential “hands on” curriculum and job-skill training.  

Whatever your community gardening endeavor might be, consider applying for a Saul Wiseman Grant for the coming year.
