Apply Now For a Grassroots Grant to Engage Youth in Gardening

January 5, 2017

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s charitable foundation announced the opening of the GRO1000 Grassroots Grants award program, inviting non-profit organizations from across the country to apply for funds to improve their communities.  The Grassroots Grants program, now in its seventh year, provides support to not-for-profit organizations to better their neighborhoods through the development of community gardens and greenspaces.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation will support the creation of 1,000 community greenscapes by 2018, which aligns with the The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s 150th anniversary.  To date, more than 830 community organizations across the country, as well as dozens of major U.S. cities, have received program funding.

The 2017 GRO1000 Grassroots Grants application is available online now at www.GRO1000.com.  The deadline for application submission is February 20, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. EST.  Grants range from $500 to $1,500 and are awarded based on youth engagement, community impact, harvest donation, and sustainability, among other factors.
