Nature’s Path Organic Foods Invites Communities to Apply for Gardens for Good Grant Program
Deadline: May 31, 2012

Nature’s Path Organic Foods, an organic cereal manufacturer, has announced the launch of the third annual Gardens for Good grant contest, a program designed to help urban communities increase the amount of acreage dedicated to organic food production as well as access to healthy, organic food.

Three nonprofit organizations from the United States and Canada will be selected to receive a grant and technical assistance for their community-based organic garden project.

Community members and organizations are invited to visit Nature’s Path’s Facebook page to apply between May 1 and 31, 2012, and to vote between June 1 and June 30, 2012. From the nine organizations (six U.S. and three Canadian) that receive the most votes, Nature’s Path will choose three winners (two in the U.S. and one in Canada) to receive a $15,000 cash grant, technical design assistance, production mentorship courtesy of Organic Gardening magazine, a free organic breakfast community celebration, and a donation of Nature’s Path products for the local food bank.

Visit the Nature’s Path Web site for complete program guidelines and information on previous grant recipients.
