This June I spent time working with inner city kids building gardens. It was amazing to see the kids learning how good it is for them to touch the soil and experience a garden. Burpee Home Gardens® Supports many youth gardens and is turning its focus to the 2012 season when they will award several schools with money, plants, a camera, and organic fertilizer for a youth garden at the school.


Two grand-prize school winners will be awarded the prizes below with a spring garden installation in 2012 and an amazing kick-off gardening event.

  • Up to 500 vegetable and herb plants* including the BOOST collection
  • $2,500 for program supplies
  • On-site assistance for initial garden layout and installation
  • Installation-day event and publicity coordination
  • Five gallons of Daniels® Plant Food (a sustainable fertilizer)
  • Flip® video camera to document garden progress

* Quantity of plants is dependent upon size of garden and need

In addition, three runners up will receive 500 vegetable and herb plants, including the Burpee BOOST collection; five gallons of Daniels Plant Food; and a Flip video camera.


Burpee is encouraging schools and youth educators, community centers or organizations, and youth groups to apply. To enter a school you know into the contest, please follow this link to the contest page and follow the instructions on completing the application –

Teaching kids where their food REALLY comes from = PRICELESS!! Please enter a school to win so a child might get the chance to experience a garden.
