What is the School Garden Grant program?

Whole Kids Foundation created the School Garden Grant Program in partnership with FoodCorps to provide a $2,000 monetary grant to fund school gardens and related activities each Spring.

Since 2011, we have raised more than $4 million and funded gardening projects at more than 2,100 schools. Check out the online map to see where we have awarded grants.

Seeds of hope can sprout up anywhere!

We have funded successful school garden programs in a variety of settings: urban or rural, indoors or out, in the windowsill, on the wall or in the schoolyard. No matter where you plant them, gardens help kids understand that food doesn’t come from a can or a box—but from the magic of a seed.
