Market Kids participants sell their produce at a local farmer's market.

Plenty!, Harper Lovegrove, Jordan Mills – Market Kids

Date grant awarded: July 19, 2019

Market Kids is a summer program for children that teaches gardening, nutrition, and entrepreneurship. Kids plant seeds, tend to them throughout the program, and then harvest & sell their produce at a local farmer’s market at the end of the summer. During the weekly lessons, children also learn about healthy eating, the local food system, and how to market a business using logos and slogans. Plenty!, a non-profit located in Floyd, Virginia, will host Market Kids for the first time in Summer 2019, replicating the success of Market Kids at the Farmacy Garden in Christiansburg, Virginia. Grant funds from The Pollination Project will help pay for kid-sized gardening equipment, healthy snack items, market sales day supplies, and more! Thank you TPP!
