Suggestions for WS Funding
I have been asked to request an amount of money from my daughter's school for a winter sowing project. I need help coming up with a dollar amount.
I think I have plenty of seeds to share with four classrooms of children, and I could get more, but I was thinking about asking for money to cover the soil (no pun intended).
I use ProMix, but maybe I need to be a bit more cost conscious for this project and purchase soil that is a little less expensive. (I usually purchase PM by the compressed bale, so maybe this is a good deal for lots of containers? The PM compressed bale is 3.8 cubic feet and is $50 plus tax. Thoughts?)
Let's say there are 100 kids in the four classes but only 80% participation. Each child will have two containers (milk jugs or 2-liter soda bottles)--one to take, one to donate to community and school gardens.
How much money for soil should I ask to fill 160 containers? Fifty dollars? One hundred?
Thanks for any advice or help with this project.
