Environmental Youth Alliance Seeking Support

For the first time in its long history the EYA’s Growing Kids program is asking for the community’s help. Difficult financial realities have put this school mentorship program in serious jeopardy.

Growing Kids is one of Grandview Woodland Food Connection’s most important school garden programs, bringing important garden learning and curriculum to Britannia school and students. In the past four years that we have partnered, we have exposed hundreds of youth to food gardening, opening their minds to new possibilities, knowledge, and understanding that is so critical these days.

EYA is hoping that their crowd funding campaign will be the spark that ignites a new and exciting future for this long under-funded (though incredibly impactful) program.

“It’s incredible to think every seed we plant…has the power to change someone’s life. I know gardening has changed my life, and being able to share this gift with other people means a lot to me.” -EYA Program Participant

Please help and share this campaign and help inner-city youth discover their inner nature.
