Resource for Residents: Maryland Agriculture Education Foundation Announces Opening of LET’S GRO Together Grants

The goal of the “LET’S GRO” Grant is to increase the understanding and appreciation of agriculture in the lives of students, especially those living in urban areas. School and community garden projects help meet this goal through hands-on gardening and classroom activities that meet Common Core, Environmental Literacy, and NGSS standards. The “LETS GRO” Grant is ideal for any project that offers students direct experience with growing, harvesting, and preparing fresh foods while learning about concepts in botany, nutrition, environmental stewardship, and engineering practices.
