Apply for the 2011 School Garden Plant Project – Helping Gardens Grow
A schoolyard garden positively addresses six of the eight contributing factors to obesity identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gardening helps children learn about making better food choices, encourages physical activity, reduces sedentary behavior, and leads to healthier environments at home, at school and in the community. At the same time, gardens provide a positive reason for school communities to come together, with parents, teachers, administrators, volunteers and children working together to green our communities.
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
