The National Gardening Association is again offering Youth Gardening Grants to programs with child-centered gardening programs. 5 awards of $1000 and 95 awards of $500 will be given to winning applicants in the form of Home Depot gift cards, and applications are due November 28, 2011. OST providers who use project-based learning are already integrating youth leadership and rigorous academic content into hands-on activities, and would be ideal applicants for these grants. A sample gardening project that emphasizes literacy is available on our Sample Projects page. Additionally, for more gardening resources, including an application form for free seeds, see here.
