Joining forces Opal Apple and Katie's Krops are thrilled to be able to offer grants to kids ages 9 to 16 to start vegetable gardens where the bounty is donated to individuals in need. Katie's Krops gardens provide a sustainable solution to hunger while teaching kids an understanding of agriculture and the environment, nutrition, responsibility, and compassion. Grants are available in the following areas where Opal Apples are sold:
The grant winners will receive materials to start a vegetable garden to feed people in need in their community. The winners will be awarded a gift card to a garden center in their area (up to $400), support from Katie’s Krops, and a digital camera to document the garden and the harvest. Applications for all types of vegetable gardens, such as a container garden if you live in a city, or a vegetable garden located in your neighborhood or at your school, will be considered. Applicants must be between the ages of 9 and 16 as of March 1, 2012. Groups of kids such as classes or youth groups may apply but the applicants must fall into the age requirements. Applications must be postmarked by March 5, 2012. All applications must be filled out completely and signed by a parent or legal guardian.
