School Garden Grant: Deadline Extended to November 30

The School Garden Grant Program is a collaboration between Whole Kids Foundation and FoodCorps. Due to Hurricane Sandy, the deadline to apply has been extended to November 30, 2012:

A school garden is 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.

To be eligible for the $2,000 (US$) School Garden Grant, an applicant must be a nonprofit K-12 school (public, private or charter – elementary, middle, or secondary) and/or a 501(c)(3) organization that is developing or currently maintaining a garden project on school grounds that will engage children with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Garden projects may be at any stage of development (planning, construction or operation). In selecting grant recipients, priority will be given to both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong buy-in from stakeholders, as well as demonstrating ability to financially sustain the garden.
