The annual Garden Crusader Awards program was established by Gardener’s Supply to honor individuals who are improving the world through gardening. “Garden Crusaders” are individuals who are gardening beyond their own backyards to grow food for the hungry, beautify their communities, and help friends and neighbors discover the rewards of gardening.
The award honors individuals in the United States who are improving their communities through gardening. There is no age requirement. Organizations may apply by choosing one person to represent the group.
Award categories include Education, Feeding the Hungry, Urban Renewal, and Restoration. There are five winners for each category – first, second, third, plus two honorable mentions and one grand-prize winner, for a total of eighteen winners overall. The grand-prize winner will receive $2,500 in cash and a $2,500 gift certificate from Gardener’s Supply. First-place winners will receive a $1,000 gift certificate, second-place winners a $750 gift certificate, third-place winners a $500 gift certificate, and honorable mentions a $200 gift certificate. All prizes will be awarded to the winner’s organization in his or her name.
