We Take Kids Gardening Seriously – Our Annual Grant Impact Report
Our garden grant winners tell us of the many positive changes they see in the attitudes and behaviors of students that participate in garden programs. Of our 2015 grant recipients, 85% noticed improvements in the environmental attitudes of their students, 76% noticed improvements in nutritional attitudes, 69% noticed an increase sense of community spirit, and 65% noted increased self-confidence. A total of 86% of the programs reported that their students were able to sample the harvest from their gardens and 73% of those programs noticed a high or moderate increase in the consumption of fruits and vegetables of their students.
The programs we support are changing lives and communities by nurturing young bodies, hearts and minds.
