Seeds of Change(R), maker of organically grown seeds and nutritious organic foods, has announced this year’s 16 Share the Good grant recipients. The Salinas Education Center Garden in Salinas, Calif. will receive a $25,000 grant while 15 additional organizations will receive $10,000 grants to support new or existing community based gardening and sustainable farming programs. The South Winneshiek FFA chapter in Calmar was a recipient of a $10,000 grant for their school greenhouse project.
Share the Good is funded by the Seeds of Change “1% Fund,” the company’s commitment to donate one percent of net sales to community-based nutrition, gardening and farming programs. The 16 organizations were selected from a pool of more than 700 applicants that applied through the company’s Facebook page. The grant program, which is in its second year, has distributed nearly $300,000 to enhance the environmental, economic and social well-being of gardens, farms, farmers and communities nationwide.
