2018 Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation and National Head Start Association
Garden Grant Application
In collaboration with The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, The National Head Start Association is honored to bring the life-enhancing benefits of gardens to more children and families in the Head Start community. Our desire is for this garden grant program to foster exciting, hands-on experiences for Head Start children and families, connecting them with their natural world, increasing their appreciation and understanding of fresh healthy foods and nutrition, and inspiring a lifelong love of gardening.
Please read the Frequently Asked Questions prior to submitting an application. $5,000 grants, plus garden kits, will be awarded to the ten (10) highest scoring applicants. The Garden Grants are a three (3) year program with an opportunity to apply again in the fall of 2019 and 2020.
As part of the grant award, Head Start programs will be expected to host a Community Build Day, bringing together Head Start students and families, community partners, and ScottsMiracle-Gro associates in a day of community service to build and celebrate the garden. Community Build Days should be held during the March through June timeframe.
