Garden Grant Opportunity
The Whole Kids Foundation Garden Grant deadline is getting close: November 15, 2012. To be eligible for the $2,000 School Garden Grant, 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 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.
