The 2022 Youth Garden Grant Supporting Educational Programs

Since 1982, the Youth Garden Grant has supported school and youth educational garden projects that enhance the quality of life for students and their communities.


Any nonprofit organization, public or private school, or youth program in the United States or US Territories planning a new garden program or expanding an established one that serves at least 15 youth between the ages of 3 and 18 is eligible to apply. Previous Youth Garden Grant winners are not eligible.

We prioritize the following when selecting winners…

The selection of winners is prioritized based on demonstrated need and program impact. KidsGardening considers a variety of factors when determining need, including:

  • Economic & Demographic Factors: Does the program exist within or engage an under-resourced community? Is program leadership representative of youth participating in the program?
  • Program Funding and Support: Does a program have limited access to resources and/or consistent monetary support, including recent grant funding?
  • Impact: Will grant funding expand learning opportunities for program participants? Does the intended impact of the program reflect the needs of the community?
