Gardening changes and improves kids’ lives, their communities, and the planet. KidsGardening has been a leader in the youth gardening movement since launching the Youth Garden Grant in 1982, the first and longest running program of its kind.
As a national nonprofit, we inspire and support garden educators, volunteers, and families by offering grants, original educational resources, and by cultivating a community of practice. Garden-based learning improves nutritional attitudes and educational outcomes, enhances social and emotional learning, and gives rise to environmental stewardship in youth across the country. We envision generations of happier, healthier kids learning in the garden and connecting to nature.
