Announcing the Katie’s Krops Scholarship Program

Youth volunteers are the heart of our organization. It is through their dedication to ending hunger, one vegetable garden at a time, that we are truly able to grow and impact so many lives.  In order to recognize our young volunteers and the invaluable service that they provide to their communities, we are implementing the Katie’s Krops Scholarship Program. Beginning this year, Katie's Krops will award one scholarship to a youth volunteer in our flagship area of South Carolina and one scholarship to a grantee who is growing with us around the United States.

The two $500 Katie’s Krops Educational Scholarships will be presented to two young volunteers who embody the spirit of Katie's Krops and embrace the belief that kids can help end hunger in their community. The Katie’s Krops Volunteer Scholarship will be awarded in July and the Katie’s Krops Grantee Scholarship will be awarded in October.

Katie's Krops would like to thank all of the young volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to improving their communities. We are exceedingly proud of each and every one of you as you support your communities and support the dream of Katie’s Krops!

Announcing The Very First Katie's Krops Camp!

We are thrilled to announce our very first Katie's Krops Camp. This July fourteen Katie's Krops Grantees will attend an all expenses paid 3 days camp in Pelion, South Carolina. This immersive experience will not only reward our grantees but will also teach them new growing practices, budgeting, how to photograph their gardens and so many other tools which will increase their productivity as well as the impact that they are having in their communities. The camp will also feature a Katie's Krops Dinner where the campers will prepare a meal for families in need in Columbia, South Carolina. The camp will give our grantees the opportunity to get to know their peers, meet and work with the Founder of Katie's Krops as well as meet a few surprise special guests.

The camp to be held July 16-18, 2013, at the headquarters of WP Rawl a sponsor of Katie's Krops. Giving back to the community is important to the family-owned WP Rawl, and a partnership with Katie’s Krops was a perfect match. As such, for every bag of specially marked Nature’s Greens Kale and Collard Greens sold from October 2012 – January 2013, WP Rawl gave a percentage of sales to Katie’s Krops and provided funding for 15 grants in 2013, along with funding the camp.

“The first time I watched Katie speak, I knew I wanted to help her cause,” said Ashley Rawl, Director of Sales & Marketing for WP Rawl. “I started thinking of ways where we could help her empower other kids to do the same thing she is already doing. Katie’s Camp was born on that day and I am so pleased that we will be able to make it come to life.”

We at Katie's Krops are so proud of all of our young growers across the country. To bring our grantees together is dream come true. We are excited to learn from them and further empower them to grow a healthy end to hunger in their communities.

The camp will be open to all current and new Katie's Krops Grantees. Our current grant cycle, which is open to kids 9 to 16 and is sponsored by WP Rawl and Opal Apple is open until March 1st (please see the grant section of our website for an application). All new grantees that are selected during the current grant cycle will be eligible to apply to attend the camp.
