It creates knowledge of and respect for whole nutritious food, informing their food choices for years to come. The School Garden Grant program provides a $2,000 monetary grant to a K-12 school, or a nonprofit working in partnership with a K-12 school, to support a new or existing edible garden on school grounds."
