Petaluma Bounty made it through the first round of applications for the Seeds of Change® Grant Program and we need your help to ensure we make it to the next round! Seeds of Change® is an organic food and seed company that is committed to helping organizations across the country create healthier, more sustainable communities. In support of their mission, they are giving community-based gardening and farming programs an opportunity to receive $200,000 in funding, distributed through $20,000, $10,000 and $1,000 grants. I would like to ask for your help in supporting our submission during the public voting phase of the process. If successful, funds for this grant will go toward expanding Bounty educational initiatives and hiring a farm educator. To read more about the Bounty Educational Program, please click here. Starting NOW until April 27th at 12:00 p.m. EDT, each person has the opportunity to vote one time per day through facebook or Seeds of Change’s grant website (See below). Around April 30, the top 50 applications will move on to the final judging phase. Around May 12, Seeds of Change® will announce which school programs and which organization programs will each receive one of the two $20,000 grants, the five $10,000 grants or the ten $1,000 grants. Seventeen schools and 17 organizations will be chosen. This is a great opportunity for our community to rally behind the Bounty Educational Program and I hope you’ll help me get the word out to encourage votes for Petaluma Bounty/PPSC through your networks including social media, email and neighborly nudges! Attached, you’ll find a flyer that you can post on facebook or otherwise. Please vote via www.seedsofchangegrant.com, search by “Garden Name- Petaluma Bounty”. Please vote daily if possible.
