April is Kids Garden Month!

Kids Garden Month 2024

April is Kids Garden Month! 

Kids Garden Month is our annual celebration of kids in the garden! Each April, we host a contest to celebrate kid gardeners, as well as lifting up the many positive benefits gardening has on kids and their communities.

Four tween girls wearing blue aprons, either holding up hands covered in soil or having their hands in soil. They are inside a classroom.

This year, we are asking kids to share their favorite thing about gardening, or why kids should garden!

Entries can be from individuals, classrooms, or other groups of young gardeners. Entries are judged on creativity, originality, and enthusiasm. Kids can submit short videos, art, photographs, or creative writing.

Nine winners will be chosen, including one grand prize winner! Kids can win up to $500 plus gardening gear for their youth garden.

Take a look at some of the 2023 Kids Garden Month winners for entry inspiration!
