Our commitment—
Gro More Good

We’re cultivating the health and well-being of the next generation. By 2023, we will connect 10 million children to the powerful benefits of gardens and greenspaces.

Wherever gardens grow, kids grow too

From food deserts and poor nutrition, to childhood obesity and nature deficit, the lack of access to gardens and greenspaces is impacting the health of millions of vulnerable children. And we’re doing something about it.

We’re getting more kids outside—with their hands in the earth and their smiles bursting with joy. We’re partnering with like-minded organizations to improve children’s access to fresh food and increase their time outside connected to nature. We’re providing monetary grants, educational curriculum and training to connect 10 million children to the benefits of gardens and greenspaces. This is what growing more good looks like.

The power of gardening in children’s lives

Our hands-on work with communities allows us to see firsthand how gardens transform children’s lives. We’re growing more than gardens. We’re growing hope, self-esteem, positive relationships and better futures.

Connecting preschool children to fresh food, garden education

Our work with the National Head Start Association will teach kids, families, schools and communities how to grow their own fresh, healthy food––for life.

Our enterprise-wide commitment to the next generation

Our goal to connect 10 million kids to gardens and greenspaces is an enterprise-wide commitment. It's supported by our company, our foundation and our brands working together to elevate the critical need to connect more children to gardening and outdoor play in communities across the U.S.

Connecting kids to outdoor play

Scotts and MLB created the Scotts Field Refurbishment Program to make sure kids have a safe place to play. Grants are awarded to youth-based nonprofit organizations to give kids a modern, playable ball field.

Connecting kids to healthy food

In 2019, Miracle-Gro is monetarily supporting children's programs that will provide nutritious meals, enable access to indoor gardening units to add more fresh food, and increase edible gardens and hands-on garden education.
