NGA Grant and Award Reports: Garden Impacts and Benefits
As a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, KidsGardening.org offers children learning experiences that begin in the garden and stay with them the rest of their lives — resulting in improved academics, better eating habits, greater environmental stewardship, and ultimately healthier, more secure and engaged communities. Since 1982, KidsGardening.org has enriched the lives of over 2 million youth participants across America and around the world. Approximately 10,000 awards, totaling $4.1 million, have been distributed to install or enhance educational gardens at school and community centers. In short, we make a difference — one child, one school, one community at a time.
