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.
Jessica and her husband thought that they had prepared for everything before bringing home their second child in the summer of 2019. “He was eight pounds and one ounce when he was born. A healthy little baby boy. But on day 17,” Jessica, a senior analyst in supply chain, said, “we knew something was wrong.”
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.

At ScottsMiracle-Gro, we believe everyone has the potential to GroMoreGood in their communities. One way to bring about the good is by exercising our right to vote and make our voice heard. The importance of our voting rights as U.S. citizens cannot be understated. This election cycle, we have strived to ensure our associates have the opportunity to not only exercise their civic duty but also help others to do the same.

In a normal school year, teachers play a critical role in keeping our kids curious, engaged and excited to learn. But this school year will be anything but normal. As schools throughout the country continue to balance remote learning with in-person classes, this already tough job has gotten even more difficult and more important than ever.

Back in April, I shared the story of how our manufacturing facility in Temecula, California had shifted its operations in the midst of COVID-19 to produce and coordinate the donation of 9,000 face shields to first responders in critical need areas across the U.S.
At the time, we were honored to play even a small role in the fight against COVID-19, but we also knew there was more work to be done.
We believe good can grow anywhere. That’s why we’re committed to GroMoreGood™ everywhere.

If you are a pollinator lover like me, September is going to be an exciting month. Why? Well, in September, parks in communities around the country will be hosting BioBlitz events where park staff and community members come together to support and celebrate the variety of pollinators and plants in their area. Parks are hosting BioBlitz events as a way to find and better understand the number of pollinators––and pollinator-friendly plants––in their communities.
