Foundation offering grants for school gardens

The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation is offering grants to support Wisconsin’s elementary and middle-level public schools that wish to establish a school garden and incorporate healthy living activities and lessons into their curriculums. The application deadline is Oct. 20, 2014.

The goal of the Foundation’s School Garden Grant Program is to improve the health of Wisconsin’s youth through activities related to planning, planting, caring for and harvesting a school garden. Individual grant awards range from $500 to $2,000.

Wisconsin Medical Society members can make a difference by encouraging their local school districts to apply and by writing a letter of support for the school’s application.
