AHA Teaching Gardens Network Grant Due
Get a $2500 Grant to Support your school garden project!
The American Heart Association is seeking schools and educational facilities that are working to connect children to the garden, supporting health, nutrition, and environmental stewardship. Through this grant program, they hope to build strong communities who commit to growing healthy kids.
Program elements include building, growing and maintaining a garden, providing a hands-on learning experience, and teaching students about healthy eating and gardening via an interactive cross-curricular, standards-based gardening and nutrition education curriculum.
The Teaching Garden Network Grants are intended to:
- Connect children and families with the food system and healthy foods.
- Educate children and communities about the importance of healthy environmental practices and encouraging them to make changes to improve their health.
- Help to create a sense of responsibility and teamwork by building connections in the community, centered in health, nutrition and the environment.
Both new and established school garden programs are encouraged to apply.
