Roots for the Home Team: Inspiring the Next Generation of Changemakers Through Healthy Risks

Roots for the Home Team gives teens opportunities for critical thinking, creative problem solving, resourcefulness and leadership. The nonprofit employs teens from garden-based educational programs around Minneapolis and St. Paul to hone their leadership skills by developing recipes and making and selling salads that feature produce from their gardens. Learn how the teens have been able to successfully harness these skills when faced with obstacles stemming from the pandemic.

How Disconnecting Can Help Your Family Connect

One year into the pandemic, the dependency on technology has taken its toll and the desire to find easy ways to unplug is even more in demand. Hear from our partners at Wellness in the Schools about great ways kids and families can disconnect from the screens and reconnect with themselves and the world around them.

Dig In! Picture Books about Mindfulness and Tuning into Nature

Spring is in the air, bringing a feeling of hope, along with more and more days where the weather invites us outdoors. There are many picture books that encourage readers to soak it all up and really experience the outdoors in a thoughtful way. Find some of our favorites that focus on nature as a setting for active adventures, observations, practicing mindfulness, and tuning in and taking care of ourselves.

Since 2011, we have provided over 8.2 million kids with opportunities to connect with nature and food through our grants and programs.
