Voots “Get Kids Growing” Garden Grants Celebrates the 2013 Grand Prize Winner
Washington Elementary School in San Gabriel, Calif. is the grand prize recipient of the Voots Veggie-Fruit Tarts and National Gardening Association’s (NGA) “Get Kids Growing” Garden Grants program. The school was selected as the grand prizewinner out of 650 nationwide applicants and to celebrate their receipt of $2,000 in gardening supplies including raised beds, tools, and more, the school hosted a Voots “Get Kids Growing” gardening event on Thursday, June 27 with Voots Veggie-Fruit Tarts and the NGA.
This patriotic-themed event helped to get kids outside in the sun and interested in learning more about gardening and the value of nutritious fruits and veggies. Students, parents and staff, along with Jessica Mitchell of Pharmavite LLC (makers of Voots supplements) and Mike Metallo, President of the NGA, snacked on nutritious red, white and blue fruits and veggies while participating in gardening activities and learning more about the importance of growing our own food to help the environment and our health and wellness. A healthy yoga session designed for kids also took place and Independence Day decorations themed the event in honor of the upcoming holiday!
