Grants ranging from $100 to $600 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools for a wide variety of public food garden projects. Projects may include school gardens, community gardens, food bank gardens, senior gardens, and homeless shelter gardens.
This year, SeedMoney is offering grants to food garden projects through a 30-day crowdfunding challenge running from Nov 15 to Dec 15. The grants offered are on a sliding scale and range from $50 to $700. 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.
