NUTRIENTS FOR LIFE HELPS 50 SCHOOLS START A SCHOOL GARDEN IN 2018

 

Nutrients for Life Foundation Canada is pleased to announce this year’s winners of our school learning garden grant program.  We are happy to partner with schools helping teachers get students outside, get their hands in the soil and learn about growing food from the ground up! We would like to congratulate these 50 new schools and welcome them into our national school garden program. We are looking forward to watching your gardens grow and supporting student engagement these gardens provide for.  These gardens are only possible from our generous sponsors across North America.
