Carson High School’s Greenhouse Project needs votes to get grant
The Greenhouse Project at Carson High School has entered the Seeds of Change Grant Program for an opportunity to win one of two $20,000, five $10,000 grants or ten $1,000 grants, and the program is asking the community to vote for its application.
The Seeds of Change Grant Program aims to enhance the environmental, economic and social well-being of gardens, farms and communities. The grants will be awarded to organizations that help support sustainable, community-based gardening and farming programs that focus on teaching people about the food they eat and how it’s grown.
The Greenhouse Project submitted an application highlighting how it would use grant money to grow its gardening program and achieve its goals.
Voting takes place April 9-20 on the Seeds of Change Facebook page, available at http://www.facebook.com/seedsofchange, or at http://www.seedsofchangegrant.com. One vote per person can be submitted per day.
After voting closes on April 20, the top 50 organizations with the most votes will move on to the final judging phase. Around May 5, Seeds of Change will announce the 34 grant recipients.
Funding for the grant program comes from the 1% Fund, Seeds of Change’s commitment to donate one percent of net sales to community-based nutrition and gardening programs.
