Apply Now for a 2016 Community Garden Grant

January 8, 2016

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company recently announced the opening of the GRO1000 Grassroots Grants award program, now in its sixth year. The program aids communities and not-for-profit civic organizations looking to improve their neighborhoods through the installation of pollinator habitats and community gardens and green spaces.

GRO1000 is part of ScottMiracle-Gro’s promise to support the creation of more than 1,000 community gardens and green spaces in the U.S., Canada and Europe by 2018, which will align with the company’s 150th anniversary. To date, more than 680 community organizations across the country, as well as dozens of major U.S. cities, have received program funding.

The 2016 GRO1000 Grassroots Grants application is available online at www.GRO1000.com. The deadline for application submission is February 22, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Grants, which range from $500 to $1,500, are awarded based on pollinator habitat creation, community impact, youth involvement, harvest donation and sustainability, among other factors. Winners will be announced following the first day of spring, March 21, 2016.
