Posted on September 08, 2016 by The VRG Blog Editor


The Whole Kids Foundation is dedicated to supporting schools and inspiring families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. The Foundation’s School Garden Grant Program provides support for edible gardens at K-12 schools in the U.S. and Canada. These grants of $2,000 are awarded to schools as well as nonprofit organizations working in partnership with schools. Consideration is given to new or existing garden projects at any stage of development that help children engage with fresh fruits and vegetables. The application process for both U.S. and Canadian projects opens on September 1, 2016. U.S. applications must be submitted by October 31, 2016; Canadian applications are due November 30, 2016. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the program.
