Individual Plant Grant

Individual Plant Grant

Our ecosystems are in crisis and need your help by planting more native plants. Bona Terra is offering plant grants to individuals who are ready to start making a difference in their communities. Choose your plan of action from the approved options below to bring more native plants to your community. Individuals may choose 2 community pot quarts of seedlings per pick up. You will be responsible for dividing and either directly planting them or potting them up to be given away for free to members of your community.

The intention of the plant grant is to create habitat, inform members of our communities about the importance and value of planting natives, and to make native plants more accessible in our communities. Please select one or more approved plans in the form below.
