Preschool Garden Grants

Resource Guide for Preschool Gardens

In 2012, Western Growers Foundation (WGF) worked with the California Department of Education (CDE), Nutrition Services Division (NSD) to provide 100 garden grants of $1,000 each to eligible child care centers or preschools participating in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). These competitive garden grants were awarded to agencies or sites that demonstrate how they will use garden-enhanced nutrition education to promote fruit and vegetable consumption among 2-5 year olds in child care or preschool settings.
