Applications for our 2023 Gardens for Good Program are Now Closed. Public Voting is Open June 12 – 25.

At Nature’s Path, we believe in the power of community gardens to plant it forward® by alleviating food security and creating a positive social impact on the communities in which they are grown. Since 2010, our Gardens for Good program has donated over $615,000 to 74 community gardens supporting the organic movement and investing in a flourishing future for their families and neighbors.

With food insecurity on the rise across North America and research indicating community gardens can lower household food security concerns by up to 90%, Nature’s Path is increasing donation efforts from previous years, awarding each community garden winner $7,500 for more impactful outcomes for the gardeners.

How to Support:

Once all applications are received, you can learn more about the community gardens and vote for the applicant of your choice, strengthening their chances of winning $7,500 in grant money. By voting, you are putting money directly into the hands of deserving, organic gardeners, lowering household food security concerns and empowering positive community growth.

Winner Selection Process:

Every year we receive so many deserving garden applications, so how do we choose the final 15 winners?  To select the winners, we consider both the number of votes your garden receives (during the voting phase) and conduct an internal evaluation of your application based on our 3 criteria (outlined in the rules & regulations).


Over the years we’ve donated over $615,000 in grant money to over 74 gardens across North America. Here are just a few examples of our previous winners and their inspiring garden projects.
