Nature’s Path is giving $50,000 in cash, garden design, technical assistance, and fund raising support to two deserving communities.

Background:

At Nature’s Path, we live for healthy, great-tasting organic foods. It’s why we get up in the morning. But we are also a company that wants to do more than just sell breakfast foods.
We aspire to advance the cause of people and planet, along the path to sustainability. And we put our money where our mouth is, rather, where our heart is. Because growing organic, healthy foods in a sustainable way is our passion—the cornerstone of our family company. It’s where, and how, it all began, 25 years ago.

Two garden grantees will each win the following:

• A $10,000 grant to plant an organic garden in their community in 2010 (cash grant)
• Coaching from Organic Gardening magazine to help establish the garden, including technical assistance with design, and technical assistance and guidance to build it (estimated value $5,000)
• An organic breakfast fundraising event and garden dedication hosted by Nature’s Path to raise funds for the winning organization. Nature’s Path will provide product and reusable shopping bags at the event (estimated value $10,000)
• Total – Two grants valued at $25,000

Participation requirements are as follows:

• Applicants must be a 501(c)3 feeding program (food bank, soup kitchen, summer feeding, children’s program or shelter) serving a community in need
• Applicants must own the property or have legal permission from the landowner to establish a permanent organic garden on premises
• Applicants must be prepared to get dirty – using the grant money to execute the installation of an onsite organic garden within the 2010 calendar year

Selection Process:

• This is a one question, 500 words or less, application process. In your essay, please clearly answer the following question: “Tell us about your program, who you serve, and how a garden grant will help you to serve more people.”
• Consider uploading photos and videos that help us to understand your program and illustrate your creativity and commitment to the process.
• Winners will be selected based on the information provided in the question below and by the number of votes and comments received on the application
• Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2010. Remember – Encouraging your community to participate in the voting process is a benefit. – be sure to let them know you are applying and ask for their support!
