The American Heart Associations Teaching Gardens are funded by donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and other community-based organizations.   

Once funding is in place, a garden location is determined.    The designated school must complete a comprehensive survey that assures their commitment to the program.  Additionally, the school is required to establish a Teaching Gardens Committee to be involved in the program.   Before the first planting, this Committee receives special training to help guide their responsibilities.
