What are the appropriate grade levels?


Is there a limit to the number of participants?


The theme for this project is:

Health and Wellness, Nutrition, Plants, Education, Cooking

91% of kids do not eat the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Through a multi-touch point project with Nurture, students will first receive their personal copy of “Where Does a Rainbow Grow?” to read with the author and take home. Students will learn about the importance of eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies, and will get their hands into soil to plant seedlings, and, in turn, understand where these healthy plant foods come from. Students will then deliver their seedlings to a selected site of their choice (suggestions include: The Connection, The Advocates, Bloom Community Farm, the Hope garden, etc.).
