Growing Healthy Habits In Our Community – CFF Garden Grant Committee Selects Spring 2023 Grant Recipients

The Garden Grant Program provides students with a hands-on learning at how food is grown. They learn how to grow, harvest and prepare a variety of fruits of vegetables. 

This amazing program also introduces students to try new healthy and nutritious food. 

The California Fertilizer Foundation Garden Grant Committee selected three start-up programs including Bradshaw Christian High School in Elk Grove, Mary Silveria Elementary in San Rafael, and Discovery Elementary School in Carlsbad.

The Committee also funded nine existing programs including Jackson Elementary School in Sanger, Loma Vista Elementary School in Santa Ana, Buena Park Middle School in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Leadership Academy in Los Angeles, Valley Elementary in Poway, Novato Charter School in Novato, Love Elementary School in Alameda, Salida Middle School in Modesto, and Wilkinson High School in San Francisco.

Darnall Charter School in San Diego was also a previous grant recipient that was selected to receive a $1,500 grant to continue expanding their program.

Each year, the CFF Garden Grant program awards up to 24 schools across California (12 schools twice per year) with $1,200 grants to start a garden program or to enhance existing programs in schools located in disadvantaged communities.
