Grants of $3,500 in cash, as well as $1,500 worth of equipment are available in order to create community gardens throughout the USA as well as in Canada. Projects must involve the creation of a new garden and should promote teamwork and community togetherness. The goal of the funding is to increase civic and community collaboration and to beautify outdoor spaces.

Project Orange Thumb was created in order to contribute to the growing community garden effort. The program is intended to recognize projects that will make differences in their communities through unique community garden initiatives while demonstrating and communicating how a small group of people can make changes that affect and involve the entire community.

One garden makeover award will be granted. Applicants must specify that they are interested in applying for a complete garden makeover.
