ln the 90s, the Brooklin Garden Club established a Grant program open to all Elementary Schools on our Peninsula, to pay for seeds and plants, and/or maintenance, to improve existing gardens and green houses; Teachers might see a need for teaching material and School Librarians be looking for funds to add educational books on gardening, flowers, birds asnd water foul. Grants are also available to other groups and individuals that provide services consistent with the mission of the Brooklin Garden Club.
