Seeds of Change, maker of certified organic rice blends and Indian simmer sauces, contacted me to let me know about their grant program, and I invited them to share the following information in the hope that maybe some of us can get a grant for our school gardens!
When it comes to talking about nutrition and the foods we eat, the best laid plan can sometimes be looking at it from the ground up! Many cities are home to local community garden or farming programs, whether it’s a local gardening association, community club or even school. These programs are an incredibly powerful tool for teaching families and communities about the foods they eat and where it comes from. Seeds of Change® is currently accepting applications through April 22 for its Share the Good grant program, which offers a $25,000 grant and 15 $10,000 grants to support organizations that inspire nutrition, gardening and farming programs.
If you’re interested in applying for a Share the Good grant, just visit www.sharethegoodrant.com to “Like” the Seeds of Change Facebook page and get access to the grant application and information. Share the Good is funded by the Seeds of Change “1% Fund,” the company’s commitment to donate one percent of its global net sales to community-based nutrition, gardening and farming programs.
Organizations can apply for a Share the Good grant until 11:59 a.m. ET April 22. At noon on the same day, all application will be available to view and for a public vote to determine the top 50 that move on to the final judging phase. You can vote once per day. The grant recipients will be announced around June 4th – good luck!
