2013 Coles Junior Landcare Garden Grants – Round 2 Now Open
 
Applications are now open for the Coles Junior Landcare Garden Grants program, and all schools, preschools, kindergartens and community groups involving young people are encouraged to apply.

The program offers grants of up to $1,000 to help set up gardens in communities and school grounds, giving kids a fun and interactive opportunity to learn about nature, growing their own food, and environmental sustainability. Previous grant recipients have used the funding for a variety of garden projects including veggie and herb, bush tucker, water wise and multicultural gardens, along with worm farm, composting and recycling projects.

Round 2: Closes 5pm (AEST) Friday 10 May 2013

These grants are a good idea.

Are Coles Supermarkets involved?

Interesting that Coles is promoting garden grants on the one hand, but on the other hand busy importing alot of its canned vegetables.

I have become more and more annoyed seeing on Coles shelves less choice from suppliers other than their own brand. I've looked at the origin of their Coles brand canned vegetables and other food products and they are often cheaper imports.

What's going to happen to Australia's future food security if this kind of market dominance drives Australian farmers to the wall???

Yeah Coles funds them. The food integrity situation is concerning.
