Community donations are for towns that are ready to get to work. Does your town have a policy in place that supports or requires the use of organic practices in parks and playing fields, but hasn’t yet transitioned all fields to organic? Or is your town interested in exploring transitioning to organic and ready to commit a couple of fields to a trial? If so, our community donation may be just the thing to help you get moo-ving! Community donations provide towns with $5,000 in cash to use towards the purchase of organic (OMRI-approved) inputs or landscaping equipment needed for organic management, plus in-kind community support and technical services valued at $10,000-$20,000. Residents, town employees, or town elected officials can nominate their community to receive one of these donations.
