Pollinator Garden Rebate

The growing success of the Wild Ones Columbus annual native plant sale has allowed us to establish a native pollinator garden reimbursement fund. This program was started in 2022 and we’re excited to be able to fund even more projects this year! Wild Ones Columbus will provide reimbursement checks ($100, $250, or $500) to kickstart new native plant gardens in public facing locations in Central Ohio communities. The deadline for 2023 spring/summer project applications has now passed and awardees have been notified. The application window for fall projects will be accepted June 15th – August 1st. Download the application below for more details. Awardees for each cycle will be posted at the bottom of the page.
