Smarter, happier, healthier kids have one thing in common. They spend more time outdoors. That’s why at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation we make it our mission to give more kids the chance to experience the benefits of gardens and greenspaces like Nasir.

Starting January 2, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation will launch its Grassroots Grants with KidsGardening, inviting schools and nonprofit organizations from across the country to apply for funds to support their youth garden programs.
