Scotts Canada launches 2021 Gro for good Grants initiative in support of Community Gardens and Green Spaces across Canada

Mississauga, ON (January 11, 2021) – Scotts Canada Limited proudly announces the 2021 edition of the Gro for good program to keep the spirit of community and connection to nature alive in Canada. The program provides grants to deserving communities, schools and non-profit organizations seeking to develop sustainable community gardens and green spaces. 

“In 2020, as a response to COVID-19 lockdowns, we saw an overwhelming interest in gardening. People engaged in gardening as a way to keep busy, address their physical and mental health needs while also improving outdoor spaces and physical distancing” says Karen Stephenson, Director, Regulatory Affairs & Stakeholder Relations for Scotts Canada. 

Scotts Canada is proud to offer another year of  Gro for good grants to support green space projects and help plant the seeds of Hope in 2021. Gardening has been shown to provide multiple benefits, such as, encouraging healthy eating habits while learning how to grow your own food along with the health and wellness benefits that come from being outdoors and interacting with nature and other members of your community. 

Scotts Canada is pleased to be offering this exciting grant opportunity to Canadian communities in partnership with Communities in Bloom, Plant · Grow · Share a Row and Nutrients for Life.

Gro for good grants are valued at $2,500 (cash plus in-kind product donation) and will be awarded to selected projects across Canada based on community impact, youth involvement and sustainability.  The applicants will need to demonstrate one or more of the following benefits to the community: addressing health and wellness needs, enhancing the environment and/or engaging with youth. Each recipient of a grant will also have the opportunity to compete for one additional grant of $2,500 in cash that will be awarded based on a social media contest hosted by Scotts Canada.
