Garden Grant Program 


At Whole Kids Foundation, we know that the more kids know and feel connected to their food, the more curious they become about how things grow or taste, and the more willing they are to try new foods. This is why we believe in edible garden learning spaces!

  • K–12 School
  • Non-profit organization (501(c)(3) in the US/Registered Charity in Canada) that serves children in the K-12 grade range

Skills for Change: Together Against Violence Symposium



Three years into the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been dealing with a global health crisis with grave threats to human life, and far-reaching consequences of major economic disruptions; women have born the biggest burden, carrying childcare responsibilities, and facing systemic issues such as gender pay gaps. Since the onset of COVID-19, there has also been an unprecedented rise in gender based violence (GBV) against women and girls.

Join Skills for Change on February 21 for our second annual symposium, bringing together community partners working in the GBV sector to share ideas, workshops, and learnings on how we can all be Together Against Violence!

This is a virtual conference, bringing key experts together, to facilitate impactful conversations around Gender Based Violence across Canada.
