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.
Indoor gardening to fight hunger, spark love of growing
Too many kids don’t have access to enough fresh, healthy food. So we’re adding freshly grown produce to children’s meals in the U.S.––thanks to our partnership with No Kid Hungry. We’re also getting hydroponics and STEM education into more schools with National Farm to School Network and Hawthorne Gardening Company.
With No Kid Hungry, our goal is to end childhood hunger by connecting kids to nutritious food—up to 4.5 million healthy meals—over the next three years. Together, we’re getting indoor gardening systems into more school and community organizations each year.
Our goal? To make fresh produce easily available to the kids who need it most.
We’re partnering with Hawthorne Gardening Company and National Farm to School Network to create STEM-aligned garden curriculum and place hydroponic garden systems in more underserved schools across the country.
Our goal? To spark a love of science learning and a passion for growing that lasts a lifetime.
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.
Connecting kids to pollinator education
Ortho is supporting the creation of pollinator habitats across the country that will educate children, families and communities on pollinator issues and what people can do to help.
