Support for edible gardens at Schools and Youth Organizations
The Whole Kids Foundation is dedicated to supporting schools and inspiring families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. The Foundation’s Garden Grant Program provides funds for edible gardens at K-12 schools in the U.S. and Canada. These grants of $2,000 are awarded to schools and nonprofit organizations. Consideration is given to new or existing garden projects at any stage of development that help children engage with fresh fruits and vegetables. Applications will be accepted from September 1 through October 15, 2019, for both U.S. and Canadian projects. (The Foundation’s Bee Grant Program will also be accepting applications through October 15.) Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about both of these grant opportunities.
