Growing School Gardens is a Collaboration.
A collaboration between the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation and the School Garden Support Organization Network, with the mission of bringing in-person and virtual learning and community building programs to the extensive network of school garden support organizations across the United States.
Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation
Founded in 2015, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation aims to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, especially children, to live healthier lives. With a focus on nutrition education and fresh food access, their nonprofit partners teach children both how to grow and prepare fresh foods, as well as why such foods are important to their bodies. Knowing that kids who learn these lessons from a young age are more likely to grow up eating healthier food as adults, the Foundation aims to reach children at every stage of development, providing hands-on learning and tasting of fresh fruits and vegetables as they grow.Learn More!

As a collective, the SGSO Network encourages the open sharing of resources, peer-to-peer learning and networking amongst school garden support professionals, with a goal of elevating, growing and sustaining garden-based education. The network’s membership consists of more than 4,000 garden educators nationwide.Learn More!
