The American Heart Association Teaching Gardens Network Grant program is now open and accepting applications to support school gardens for the 2019-2020 school year!
The Teaching Gardens Network Grants are made possible by the ongoing commitment of Kelly Meyer, founder of OneSun Fund, and Gail Becker, CEO of Caulipower, who are both dedicated to educating children about nutrition, while appreciating the benefit of eating healthy.
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, we 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.
