KidsGardening Invites Applications for School Garden Packages

Since 1982, KidsGardening has awarded Youth Garden Grants to 5,436 schools, nonprofits, and youth programs across the United States, contributing over $2.9 million to youth gardening initiatives.

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 $750 that include plants, tools, seeds, a $50 gift certificate for gardening supplies, and a KidsGardening curriculum package. Fifteen programs will receive a similar package valued at $500.

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

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