The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation And KidsGardening Announce The 2023 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grantees

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation SMG and KidsGardening announced the recipients of the 2023 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant. This year’s grant is awarding 160 programs.

This spring, summer and fall, programs will be starting or expanding their youth gardens and green spaces. The selections were made based on youth engagement, community impact, and sustainability, among other factors. In addition, 15 programs were awarded additional funding through specialty categories, plus, pride and equity.

“Spring at KidsGardening takes on an exciting buzz as we announce the winners of the GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant,” stated Em Shipman, KidsGardening’s executive director. “We’re so impressed by this year’s cohort. We’re looking forward to seeing how these incredible programs use the award to build and improve green spaces, gardens, and programming to bring the benefits of gardening to tens of thousands more kids across the country.”

The 2023 recipients span 37 states across the country and anticipate connecting more than 27,000 youth to engaging garden-based learning opportunities.

“We are continually inspired by the groups who are bringing unique outdoor experiences through gardens and green spaces,” stated Brian Herrington, president of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation. “This year’s grantees are no different, as they bring edible gardens, educational opportunities, beautification efforts, therapeutic benefits and more to their communities.”
