Each week new resources will be added to the website and e-mailed to registered families.

About This Project

Open to 4th and 5th graders in Grants Pass schools. Starting on May 11th each week of the program you will be sent links to resources and activities available through this website.

Each family that registers will be provided with two activity kits (supplies limited), one focused on gardening and one focused on healthy eating. These kits can be picked up at your school starting May 18th.

This project is funded in part through grants from ODE Farm to School and USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Thanks to a generous donation of supplies from the Grange Co-op we were able to provide 125 Garden Activity Kits to families. The Grange donated soil for all kits and garden tools, gloves, and seeds for 75 kits.
