Grant to Study Gardening Therapy to reduce Anxiety/Depression in kids with ACEs

As a parent of an older adopted child who suffered through four years of trauma before joining our family and a farmer, I am very interested in studying "Gardening Therapy" as a way to reduce anxiety and depression among kids with ACEs.  I have a school partner that wants to develop a school based community gardening program and would be willing to "pre-test" kids and develop test and control groups.  We would then have the test groups build and work in the school based garden.  After 1 month, 3 months and 1 school year, we would post test the kids to gauge improvement.

I am looking for feedback and ideas to help develop this concept as well as any leads on grants or potential funding sources for this study.
