Grants are available in amounts ranging from $50 to $400 for qualifying projects. Past projects have included Wood Creek Elementary’s classroom plants for fresh air and a no-idle campaign and a North Farmington High School water bottle refilling station. 

A Peace Love & Planet press release noted that student-led projects enable young people to become part of the solution and help develop valuable leadership skills.
