Become a Kids Garden Community Sponsor

The KidsGardening Community is a game-changing new initiative to grow young gardeners. In order to inspire, inform, educate, and build a stronger nationwide community of youth garden educators, KidsGardening developed a collaborative online platform called the Kids Garden Community. With more than 7k members, the goal of the Community is to provide a central location for direct networking for teachers, parents, and other garden educators.

Fund a Garden Build

For more than 40 years, KidsGardening has used our experience as youth garden designers and educators to install and improve high-impact, fun, and sustainable youth gardens across the country. Our expertise, guidance, and streamlined services ensure efficient communication and collaboration, making it easy for your organization and a given school, educational facility, or youth center to fully engage in the exciting process of creating or improving a youth garden! 

From companies looking to make an impact in their community through a one-time event, school districts wanting to revitalize unused garden spaces, and corporations interested in a day of service or annual volunteer initiatives, we can design and project-manage a garden installation or day of service in any community across the United States. Sponsorship starts at $20,000. We would love to share some past examples with you. Learn More!

Contact us to see how we can work together to create youth gardening educational content for your audience and ours. Topics can include anything from pollinators to social-emotional learning to delicious garden-based recipes, to name a few. Formats include guides, webinars, courses, activity kits, and more!
