We Are Proud to be a Part of 1%
For more than 40 years, the National Gardening Association has been providing educational resources and funding to create opportunities for children and adults to grow through gardening programs in schools, communities, and backyards across the country.
Our mission is to empower every generation to lead healthier lives, build stronger communities, and encourage environmental stewardship through educational gardening programs. We fulfill our mission by providing information and support for youth and school gardening programs and home gardeners — one child, one school, one community at a time. Since 1982, NGA’s youth garden grant programs have benefited more than 1.6 million young people across the U.S. and around the world with 10,000 awards totaling over $4 million in value. Find out more about all of the great work NGA is doing here.
To help fulfill our mission, we’ve developed the Gardening with Kids Online Shop, which provides tools and resources that help teachers and community leaders use gardening as a method to enhance education and foster environmentally responsible adults. From curricula used in classrooms across the country, to backyard composters, to hands-on educational kits — all of our products are NGA-certified and have been carefully selected by horticultural and educational experts for quality, durability, and student engagement. When you shop through Gardening With Kids, you’re shopping with a purpose; 100% of proceeds go towards supporting schools and communities nationwide through kids’ garden grants and free resources, including hundreds of lesson plans and family activity ideas.
