Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb garden grants provide tools and resources
to help communities reach their goals for neighborhood beautification,
community collaboration and healthy, sustainable food sources.
With trends in the gardening space moving toward a growing sense of
community and a heightened awareness of the farm-to-table movement,
people are inspired to take part in projects that encourage community
involvement. Farmers markets have become increasingly popular as well,
putting a focus on locally grown produce and educating others on where
their food comes from and its seasonality.
“At Fiskars, we know the positive impact a community garden can have,”
said Fiskars Global President Paul Tonnesen. “Project Orange Thumb is a
way for us to give back to the non-profit organizations across the U.S.
and Canada looking to come together through gardening. It’s a program we
look forward to each year.”
