The purpose of the grant program is to help these children increase their understanding of the relationship between farming and related activities to the food they eat.

Examples of eligible projects are:
• School gardens (vegetable, salsa, pizza, etc.)
• Classroom projects (herb gardens, hatchery, etc.)
• Field trips (Livestock shows, Farmers’ Markets, farms and ranches)
• Guest speakers
• After school projects
It is suggested that schools consider partnerships with organizations such as a local Master Gardner program, 4-H or FFA clubs.
