National Gardening Association Invites Applications for School Gardens Program
Deadline: October 15, 2006
As a way to encourage the growth of health-focused youth gardens, the National Gardening Association (<a href="http://assoc.garden.org/">http://assoc.garden.org/</a>) recognizes outstanding programs via the Healthy Sprouts Awards, sponsored by Gardener’s Supply Company. These awards support school garden programs that use the garden to teach about nutrition and the issue of hunger in the United States.
To be eligible for the 2006 Healthy Sprouts Awards, a school or organization must plan to garden in 2007 with at least fifteen children between the ages of 3 and 18. The selection of winners is based on the demonstrated relationship between the garden program and nutrition and hunger issues in the United States.
The program will present awards to twenty-five schools or organizations. Each will receive a $200 gift certificate to Gardener’s Supply Company; a literature and curriculum package from NGA; and NGA Supporter benefits for one year.
Complete program information and application forms are available at the NGA Web site.
