Congratulations to The Fall 2015 Jamba Juice "It's All About the Fruit and Veggies" Garden Grant Winners!

 

Join Jamba Juice and KidsGardening.org as we Team Up to celebrate five great years of garden grants! This year Jamba Juice, in partnership with KidsGardening.org, will offer 60 grants in two cycles. By the end of 2015, Jamba Juice will have provided over 200 grants totaling $100,000 for schools and youth gardens. Now that’s a great reason for us all to raise a smoothie!

Starting June 1, 2015 The Jamba Juice “It’s All About the Fruits and Veggies” garden grant program will offer 30 awards to school and youth garden programs. Programs will receive gardening equipment, curriculum, soil amendments, seeds, and plants to help create engaging nutrition and gardening experiences. Recipients will be selected based on plans to promote nutrition education, ideas for incorporating fruit and vegetable activities into the curriculum, and the ability to sustain the program over multiple years.
