garden grants

Poor nutrition and obesity are challenges that disproportionately affect low-income neighborhoods where residents lack access to fresh, healthy foods. The Foundation believes that urban agriculture can be beneficial to the environment by reducing the number of miles food travels to reach our plates and creating a more sustainable system. The planting, care and harvesting have been incorporated into the curriculum at the schools and community centers near these gardens, helping the children learn about healthy eating in a very practical way. We work in partnership with City of Orlando, Green Works Department and Fleet Farming. We are only able to consider grant requests of up to $5,000. Projects over this amount will require matching funding from the requesting organization.

If your school or community center is interested in establishing a garden, please contact us at foundation@orlandocitysc.com
