We’ve seen firsthand how a garden can change a child’s life, so we actively help create and sustain school gardens by giving grants and providing practical resources for parents and teachers. We also partner with like-minded organizations like FoodCorps. Our goal? A garden in every school. Learn more about what we’re doing to support school gardens by reading the stories below.
