Sow it Forward: Grant Opportunity

Are you a non-profit organization (school, church, food pantry, community garden or senior program) interested in starting or expanding a food garden project? Then take advantage of this garden grant and click HERE and apply today!  Sow it Forward has partnered with Kitchen Gardner's International  to provide this grant for nonprofit causes.  These $600 grants break down as follows: 

  • $300 cash grant paid in 2 installments
  • $200 giftcard to Gardner's Supply Co. 
  • $55 vegetable seed package from the Ark Institute
  • $25 one-year subscription to KGI online garden planner courtesy of GrowVeg.com
  • $20 value garden book via Storey Publishing 
Please register and sign into the KGI website via the links in the upper right corner of this page.

Return to the Sow if Forward page (under the grants tab) and the application questions will magically appear below.

Answer all the questions. If you would like to prepare some of your answers offline (which we recommend) and paste them into the form below, you can access a text version of the main questions here.

Prepare a project photo for uploading from your computer. Our preference is for a large photo with a horizontal orientation (at least 1000 pixels wide, see examples here, here, and here) showing people in action, ideally in a garden or future garden setting. For gardens that haven't been dug, you can upload a picture or drawing of the future garden site. 2MB maximum.

Submit your application by midnight Eastern time Friday, 11 January 2013. Grant decisions will be communicated on February 1st with grant packs (checks, seeds, gift certificates, books, etc.) mailed shortly thereafter.
