KidsGardening Invites Applications for 2018 School Garden Packages

Since 1982, KidsGardening has awarded Youth Garden Grants to schools, nonprofits, and youth programs across the United States, contributing more than $2.9 million in support of youth gardening initiatives.

As in the past, the 2017 Youth Garden Grant program aims to support school and youth educational garden projects that enhance the quality of life for students and their communities.

A total of twenty programs will receive award packages. The top five programs will receive packages valued at $1,600 that include a $1,000 cash prize, plants, tools, seeds, a $100 gift certificate for gardening supplies, and a KidsGardening curriculum package. In addition, twenty programs will receive a similar package valued at $600.

Any nonprofit, school, or youth program planning a new garden program or expanding an established one that serves at least fifteen young people between the ages of 3 and 18 is eligible to apply. The selection of winners will be based on demonstrated program impact and sustainability.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the KidsGardening website.

Deadline: December 8, 2017
