School Garden Grants
Why School Gardens?
A school garden is a vital educational tool. Every seed planted sprouts a
new opportunity for kids to develop healthy eating habits. Learning about
the process of growing food helps children develop a deep understanding
of the connection between healthy eating and a healthy body. School
gardens offer an opportunity to integrate math, science and health
curriculum into a dynamic, interactive setting. They also provide a base of knowledge that allows children to take an active role in healthy food choices.
