School Garden Grant Program

Whole Kids Foundation Accepting Applications for School Garden Grant Program
The Whole Kids Foundation, in partnership with FoodCorps, is accepting applications for its School Garden Grant Program.
The annual program is designed to support school garden projects designed to help students learn about complex topics such as nutrition and health, sustainability and conservation, food systems, and community awareness.
Projects may be at any stage of development (planning, construction, or operation). Priority will be given to both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong buy-in from stakeholders, as well as the financial sustainability of the project.
To be eligible, an applicant must be a nonprofit K-12 school (public, private, or charter) and/or a 501(c)(3) organization that is developing or currently maintaining a garden project on school grounds to interest children in fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, the applicant must have the support of a specific partner organization from the community (e.g., a nonprofit, farm, local business, Whole Foods store, or garden club) that brings added support and sustainability to the initiative. The applicant, if a nonprofit, may be the community partner for this grant.
Grants of $2,000 will be provided for projects lasting a year.
Visit the Whole Kids Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and the online application form.
VARIOUS DEADLINES: OCTOBER 31. 2015 AND NOVEMBER 15, 2015
