Nature’s Path Organic Foods is giving away $7,500 grants through its annual Gardens For Good contest to grow community gardens across North America. Applications close Sunday, June 4.
Nature’s Path, an organic cereal manufacturer in Blaine, will select 15 community gardens to receive $7,500 each this year. Garden projects must be registered nonprofits and grow organic food.
The program was established in 2010 and has since donated over $615,000 to nearly 75 gardens. Ten gardens in the U.S. and five gardens in Canada will receive grants this year.
Last year’s grant recipients include the Maple Alley Inn Community Garden in Bellingham and Downtown Eastside Urban Farm in Vancouver, B.C.
The public will vote on the applicants in June, and winners will be announced in July.
