Virtual Garden-based Learning Event

On April 27 from 10 to 11 a.m. (PT), Sprouts Farmers Market’s Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation, in collaboration with the School Garden Support Organization Network, will present the first-ever virtual garden-based learning event with lessons taught by students at school garden sites across the country. Held during National Garden Month, the 45-minute virtual event, “Growing School Gardens: Seeding a Healthy Future for Our Youth,” will have an estimated audience of 500 elementary schools. The student-led lessons will show how school gardens are furthering nutrition and environmental literacy, STEM education, and social–emotional wellness. Livestreamed activities will begin in Hawaii and end in Washington, DC, on such topics as Cultural Connections Between Plants, People, Food and Land; Environmental Design in the School Garden; Community and Youth Development; and We Are Scientists in the Garden.

Plus: Nonprofit organizations may apply for a Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation Neighborhood Grant of between $2,500 and $10,000 to provide children with access to healthful food and/or nutrition education. Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2021.
