Resource Types: 

Did you know about the community garden movement? People all over the country are turning to community gardens to help save money, eat healthier and build a sense of togetherness through gardening. As a leader in the lawn and garden industry, Fiskars believes in contributing to the growing community garden effort and all it represents - creative expression, beautiful outdoor spaces, civic and community collaboration, healthy hand-grown food and sustainable living.

To help support the community garden movement, we've created Project Orange Thumb. Since its inception, Fiskars' Project Orange Thumb has provided over $1.3 million to 140 community groups and helped to complete fourteen garden makeovers in the U.S. and Canada.

The Project Orange Thumb Grant Program is open to (a) any organization located in the 50 United States or D.C. that at the time of application and award is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and (b) any organization located in Canada that at the time of the application and award is listed by Canada Revenue Agency as a Registered Charity. Limit one application per organization. Previous Project Orange Thumb Grant recipients are not eligible.

Your organization could receive $5,000 in cash and garden tools to help you reach your goals of community change. Your group could even be the recipient of a complete garden makeover, in which the Project Orange Thumb team comes to your neighborhood and turns unused space into a beautiful community garden in just one day!

Annual Deadline: December 31st
