Arizona schools receive grants for school gardens

Fifty Arizona K-12 schools have been granted $1,500 each to create and sustain their own edible gardens.  The grants have been provided through the Arizona Department of Agriculture as part of the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant.

Western Growers Foundation was created by Western Growers members as a way to give back to their communities. The Foundation’s mission is to plant and sustain a fruit and vegetable garden in every willing Arizona and California school.  Edible school gardens give children the opportunity to learn where their food comes from and the importance of good nutrition.
