Seeds of Change Grant Program
You can vote for a variety of public school and community-based gardening and farming programs that communicate the seed-to-plate story through food, farming, sustainability or nutrition education.
- This year, Seeds of Change™ is awarding $310,000 in grants to 24 garden projects around the country.
With these grants, schools and communities can build a garden that makes a difference. Not only will kids learn about gardening and bring that knowledge home, but communities can benefit from easy access to healthy produce.
Help make a difference by choosing which of these deserving projects should be awarded funding. To show you how much this funding has a ripple effect, look at past results.
The Brand estimates that more than 90 tons of produce has been grown by Grant recipients benefitting over 35,000 people across the nation. Many of its grant recipients donate the produce they grow to local food pantries such as The Seed2Need program which donated 70,000 lbs. in 2015!
