2011/12/31 Whole Kids Foundation School Garden Grants


Whole Kids Foundation School Garden Grants
Open Date: --
Due Date: 12/31/2011 


Why Gardens?

School gardens are a vital educational tool. Every seed planted sprouts a new opportunity for kids to cultivate healthy eating habits. Teaching kids to garden helps them learn about complex topics like sustainability and conservation, food systems and community awareness. Not to mention an appreciation for food from seed to plate.

About the Grant Program

Learning about the process of growing food helps children develop a deep understanding of the connection between healthy eating and a healthy body. School gardens offer an opportunity to integrate math, science and health curriculum into a dynamic, interactive setting. They also provide a base of knowledge that allows children to take an active role in healthy food choices.

Apply

School garden grant applications will be accepted through 5pm CST, December 31, 2011. Learn more about the application process and apply for a school garden grant.



As of October 2, 2011, Whole Kids Foundation has raised over $1,980,090 for the School Garden Grant Program
