This year, Sun Gro® Horticulture and Black Gold® will support the Youth Garden Grant 2019 (YGG 2019)! Offered by Kidsgardening.org, a leading resource for youth-garden-based educators, this grant has served nonprofit schools, organizations, and youth programs since 1982. In this time, thousands of awards have been distributed to youth garden programs nationwide. The YGG is just one of many Kidsgardening grant opportunities available. (Click here to learn more about KidsGardening grants and grant winners.)
The purpose of the YGG is to support youth gardening across the United States and US Territories. Grant winners receive cash prizes in addition to garden packages containing gardening materials from top horticultural companies, like Sun Gro. As part of the YGG 2019 award package, Sun Gro will be offering a supply of OMRI Listed® Black Gold Natural & Organic Potting Mix to the top five winners.
In addition to grant awards, grant recipients automatically become members of the KidsGardening Fellows Program. Fellows get special networking opportunities, a quarterly newsletter, and extra chances to promote their gardening programs, in addition to receiving personalized garden help from KidsGardening horticulturists.
