Whole Kids Foundation School Garden Grant Opportunity


This annual grantmaking program supports school garden projects designed to help students
learn about topics such as nutrition and health, sustainability and conservation, food systems, and community awareness. Garden projects may be at any stage of development (planning,
construction, or operation); year-long projects will be funded $2,000. Priority will be given to
both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong buy-in from
stakeholders as well as the ability to financially sustain the garden. Eligibility: an applicant must
be a nonprofit K-12 school (public, private, or charter) and/or a 501(c)(3) organization that is
developing or currently maintaining a garden project on school grounds as a way to interest
children in fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, the applicant must have the support of a
specific partner organization from the community (a nonprofit, farm, local business, Whole
Foods store, or garden club) that brings added support and sustainability to the initiative. The
applicant, if a nonprofit, may be the community partner for the grant.

Deadline: October 31, 2016
