To Benefit

The Citywide School Garden Initiative by Grow To Learn NYC was established to inspire, facilitate, and promote the creation of a sustainable school garden in every public school across New York City via micro-grants, education, and materials. Students who participate in school garden projects show improved test scores and learn where their food comes from, combating rampant obesity and unhealthy eating habits. These students also have an increased environmental awareness, learning about sustainability, lifecycles, and climate change.
