Applications Available for Youth Garden Grant Program
Deadline: November 1, 2006

The National Gardening Association (<a href=""></a>) and Home Depot (<a href=""></a>) have announced the 24th annual Youth Garden Grant Program. Over the last twenty-four years, NGA’s Youth Garden Grants program has helped more than 1.3 million youngsters reap rewards and vital life lessons from working in gardens and habitats.

Schools, youth groups, community centers, camps, clubs, treatment facilities, and intergenerational groups throughout the United States are eligible to apply. Applicants must plan to garden in 2007 with at least fifteen children between the ages of three and 18 years. Previous Youth Garden Grant winners who wish to reapply must wait one year and have significantly expanded their garden programs.

Applicants should demonstrate a child-centered plan that emphasizes children/youth learning and working in an outdoor garden. Areas considered for support include educational, environmental, or social programming; leadership; community support; sustainability; innovation, and need.

Each winning program will receive educational materials from NGA and a gift card (amount to be determined) from Home Depot.

Program information and application are available at the NGA Kidsgardening Web site.
