Vote for Grow Food, Grow Hope!

Fifty finalists from across the country have been selected, and the public can vote on which project they would most like to support. From now until October 30, you can vote once a day, everyday, for five projects of your choosing. (Note: the more you vote for other projects, the harder it becomes for us to win, so just save those extra four votes a day for another year!) Come November, Tom's of Maine will announce the five winners of the $20,000 grant, based solely on the votes received by each project.

So here's the deal: if you can take 10 seconds out of your day, everyday, for the next month, we could be one step closer to receiving this generous grant which would fund almost all of our projects for the coming year. Click here to vote!

We're listed under the "Community" section, and, in the interest of fairness, the listing shuffles all the projects each time you refresh the page, so there's no telling where Grow Food, Grow Hope will be listed when you click on it. Just scroll down and keep your eyes open. Unfortunately (or maybe not?) we're competing with about five or six other community garden or agriculture based projects, so the help of our community, of people who are already familiar with our program, is crucial.

Please do your part, and vote for us! This really will take a collective, community effort!
