The Saul Wiseman Grants Program

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

Since 2015, our Saul Wiseman Grants have aided schools, nonprofit and community groups who serve Sacramento County’s diverse population through gardening and horticultural activities.

Many of the recipients are talented educators dedicated to making all manner of gardening experiences available in our schools and public places. Others lead community gardens or create environmentally-friendly places of beauty in our neighborhoods. Funds have purchased many things, including educational materials, plants and seeds, garden tools, and irrigation supplies.

Whatever your community gardening endeavor might be, we encourage you to apply for a Saul Wiseman Grant for the coming year.

The grant application for 2025 will be available for downloading in August 2024.
