Deadline: February 17, 2009
Launched in 2003, Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb has awarded more than 100 community groups, schools, churches, and other organizations more than $300,000 in total grants for their garden programs.
This year, the program will award 20 grants within the United States and Canada. Each will receive up to $1,500 in Fiskars garden tools and up to $800 in gardening-related materials (i.e. green goods). Four grant recipients will also be awarded within Australia. Each of these recipients will receive up to $1,000 in Fiskars Tools and up to $1,000 in gardening-related materials.
Gardens and/or gardening projects geared toward community involvement, neighborhood beautification, sustainable agriculture, and/or horticultural education are eligible. Community garden groups, as well as schools, youth groups, community centers, camps, clubs, and treatment facilities are all encouraged to apply. Only group applications will be considered; single individuals are not eligible for a Project Orange Thumb grant.
