SeedmoneySeed Money Challenge

The SeedMoney Challenge is LIVE

SeedMoney is a non-profit that runs an annual 30-day crowdfunding challenge to compete for grants for school and community gardens across the US and around the world.

The Park Alliance is proud to represent Morris County Park System’s Growing Youth Gardeners program which is an award-winning program that has been in place for more than 40 years. Children maintain their own plot of vegetables and herbs, harvesting the bounty, and preparing the harvested produce, while learning about healthy eating. 

Please donate today to help this project win a SeedMoney grant. All donations are tax-deductible and go to the project even if the goal is not reached.
