Project Orange Thumb


Heads up all ye people with green thumbs…ok, orange thumbs are good, too!

If your community has been wanting to start or enhance a garden or a gardening project geared toward community involvement, neighborhood beautification, sustainable agriculture and/or horticultural education but lacks the tools or funds necessary to get the project under way, here’s your shot at finally getting it started. All you have to do is apply for a Project Orange Thumb grant!

Twenty grant recipients will be selected within U.S. and Canada, each of whom will receive up to $1,500 in Fiskars garden tools and up to $800.00 in gardening-related materials.  In Australia, four grant recipients will be awarded, with each recipient receiving up to $1,000 in Fiskars Tools and up to $1,000 in gardening related materials.  Isn’t this exciting news?!

The grant application is open to community garden groups,  schools, youth groups, community centers, camps, clubs and treatment facilities.  The deadline for application is on February 17, 2009.   Please do take not that only group applications will be considered. Single individuals are not eligible for a Project Orange Thumb grant.

Visit the Porject Orange Thumb website for the complete rules and regulations.  This, by the way, is not a sweepstakes or contest.

Go tell your friends and community leaders about it and apply now!  A chance like this doesn’t come very often.
