Jan. 11, 2016, Mississauga, Ont. — The GRO1000 Grassroots Grants award program from Scotts Canada Limited is looking for applications.

Now in its sixth year, GRO1000 rewards deserving communities and non-profit civic organizations seeking to develop sustainable community gardens, green spaces and pollinator habitats.

The grants are part of the larger GRO1000 Gardens and Green Spaces Program, which is Scotts Miracle-Gro’s commitment to create over 1,000 community gardens and green spaces in Canada, the U.S., and Europe by 2018, the company’s 150th anniversary. To date, hundreds of community projects have received GRO1000 funding, including 43 community gardens in Canada.

Partners include Communities in Bloom, Plant a Row · Grow a Row and Nutrients for Life.

The grants range from $500 to $1,500.

New in 2016 is “The Pollinator Promise,” which is a yearlong effort from Scotts Canada and ScottsMiracle-Gro to improve consumer education about pollinators and to promote the creation of backyard and urban habitats where they can thrive.

The deadline for application submission is Feb. 22 at 11:59 p.m.
