Youth Garden Grants Program
Help children develop a love of gardening while learning about the environment and the connection between food and nutrition. The National Gardening Association and Home Depot are sponsoring the Youth Garden Grants Program. Priority of awarding grants will be given to programs that emphasize one or more of the following elements: educational focus or curricular/program integration; nutrition or plant-to-food connections; environmental awareness/education; entrepreneurship; and the social aspects of gardening, such as leadership development, team building, community support or service-learning.
Applicants must plan to garden with at least 15 children who are between the ages of 3 and 18. The application deadline is Nov. 1. For more information or to download an application, go to:http://www.kidsgardening.com/YGG.aspTweet
