I applied for one of the "Fiskars Project Orange Thumb Grants" when it was
mentioned on this list. Then, when I went to the Philadelphia Flower Show
yesterday, I saw that Fiskars had a huge display, along with a banner for
their Project Orange Thumb program. Since there wasn't a deadline for
announcing winners, I asked the folks there when the winners would be
announced (it should be about 3 weeks from today).
The gentleman in charge of the display was surprised that I had applied for
a grant -- in fact, they were shocked at how many entries they had received
this year. I mentioned that I'd seen it posted on the ACGA listserv. He
didn't realized there WAS a community gardening listserv. He also didn't
realize that there was an organization that promoted community
gardening: American Community Gardening Association.
So, I took one of Frank's business cards (always looking for someone who
wants custom software! ;-D) and wrote the name and URL for ACGA on the back
of it. Hopefully, they will be joining the list soon. MEANWHILE, those of
you in ACGA who are looking for corporate sponsors, CALL FISKARS! They
want to help! Heaven knows, we all need both cash and quality tools!
Here's the URL for the Project Orange Thumb. The deadline is today for
that program, but if you're close to their corporate office or you're on
the conference committee, call them anyway!
