The Grant Program aims to enhance the environmental, economic, and social well-being of gardens, farms, and communities. The grants will be awarded to organizations like Explore Ecology that help support sustainable, community-based gardening and farming programs that focus on teaching people about food and how it’s grown.
The Explore Ecology School Gardens Program provides weekly hands-on organic garden lessons to approximately 10,000 students at 30 elementary schools in Santa Barbara County.
