Just found out about the Fiskars 2009 Project Orange Thumb Grant Program, for “gardens and/or gardening projects geared toward community involvement, neighborhood beautification, sustainable agriculture and/or horticultural education.” Community garden groups, as well as schools, youth groups, community centers, camps, clubs, and treatment facilities are all encouraged to apply, so make haste! The application for the U.S. and Canada are due on February 17th – in 11 days – and in Australia and New Zealand on March 31. 

Twenty grant recipients in the U.S. and Canada will be selected, and each will receive up to $1,500 in Fiskars garden tools and up to $1,000 in garden-related materials. Australia and New Zealand winners get something a little different, so check the website out for more details, and good luck!
