Grants for Public Food Garden Projects – Due November 12

Funding is intended for food garden projects that serve community members in need. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, senior gardens, school gardens, community gardens, and many others.

SeedMoney offers grants on a sliding scale. The size of a grant a project can receive depends on how much it is able to raise over the 30-day period compared to other projects participating in the challenge.

There are three types of grants:

  • Strong Start Grants: For those projects that have raised the most after the 1st week of the 30-day challenge period. These can ben combined with Challenge Grants.
  • Geographic Interest Grants: For projects based in Maine or developing countries. No crowdfunding challenge is required.
  • Challenge Grants: For projects based on where they are ranked at the end of the 30-day challenge period.

The garden projects must be public gardens, and they must be proposed by nonprofit causes that are able to prove their nonprofit status.
