Growing Healthy Kansas Kids - Gardening Initiative Sub-Grants for Schools and Childcare
The Growing Healthy Kansas Kids project will help support Kansas schools and childcare centers in starting container gardens by providing resources, sub-grant funds, and guidance to a total of 50 schools and childcare centers to initiate a container gardening project. Sub-grant funds of $325 will be provided per school or childcare center selected, to help purchase gardening supplies, containers and materials. In addition, USDA nutrition education gardening curriculum will be provided to selected schools and childcare centers. Technical assistance from Kansas Team Nutrition and K-State Research and Extension will be made available for grantees through a webinar training that will provide ideas and tips on how to implement a successful gardening project. Grantee schools and childcare centers can determine how they best want to incorporate gardening and nutrition lessons into their classrooms. Schools participating in the Summer Food Service Program are also eligible to apply. Questions contact Jill Ladd at email@example.com or 785-296-2790.
