Annual grant program aims to increase children’s access to fresh food, garden education
MARYSVILLE, Ohio, January 4, 2021 /3BL Media/ – To support the rise in gardening nationwide and address the critical need to connect more children to healthy food, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation today opened its GroMoreGood Grassroots Grants with national nonprofit KidsGardening.
Justyn Clevenger spent eight years in the Army, from deployment in Afghanistan to service in the Army National Guard. He was a satellite communications specialist while in the Army, but his first civilian job while in the guard was as a mechanic.
It was our company that gave Justyn a job opportunity that aligned better with the communications skills he developed in the Army. We brought Justyn on board as a desktop analyst to undertake Windows migration work here, similar to a Windows 7 migration project he led while in the Army.
We believe good can grow anywhere. That’s why we’re committed to GroMoreGood™ everywhere.

Someone once asked what I’m most proud of when it comes to ScottsMiracle-Gro, and it’s not our brands or industry leadership. It’s about being a part of something bigger, being part of an organization that is rooted in family and in purpose.

Annual grant program to increase youth gardening nationwide
MARYSVILLE, Ohio, January 6, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Today’s youth spend less time outdoors than any other generation. To combat this, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, along with national nonprofit KidsGardening, today opened its Gro More Good Grassroots Grants, an annual grant program designed to get more kids outside through the development of youth-based garden and greenspace programs. Schools and nonprofit organizations across the country are encouraged to apply.
Ten Head Start programs across the country will soon be growing something greater next spring thanks to a grant from The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation and National Head Start Association. These ten Head Start programs were awarded monetary funds, product donations and garden kits, along with garden training and curriculum, to build or expand garden programs for their preschool students.
