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, an annual grantmaking program that supports school garden projects designed to help students learn about topics such as nutrition and health, sustainability and conservation, food systems, and community awareness.
Garden 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 ability to financially sustain the garden.
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 as a way to interest children in fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, the applicant must have the support of a specific partner organization from the community (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 the grant.
Grants will be in the amount of $2,000 for year-long projects.
See the Whole Kids Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and an online application form.
DEADLINE: OCTOBER 31, 2016
