The School Garden Grant Program is a collaboration between Whole Kids Foundation, Whole Foods Market and FoodCorps. The Whole Kids Foundation, in collaboration with Foodcorps, is providing School Garden Grants to teach kids to garden and learn about topics such as nutrition and health, sustainability and conservation, food systems, and community awareness.
Awards of $2,000 are available.
To be eligible for a garden grant, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or nonprofit K-12 school that is developing or currently maintaining a school garden project that will help children engage with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Garden projects may be at any stage of development; planning, construction or operation. For cases in which an applicant facilitates garden projects in more than one school, multiple garden grants may be requested under a single application. In occasional cases, additional funds may be awarded for special projects. In selecting grant recipients, priority will be given to both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong buy-in from stakeholders. There is a limit of one garden grant per school.
Deadline: October 31
