Announcing the 2022 SeedMoney Challenge Grantees

We’re excited to announce the 505 winners of SeedMoney grants for 2022. SeedMoney’s annual grants program, the SeedMoney Challenge, opens its doors to a wide array of nonprofit food, farm, and garden projects worldwide. From community gardens to food bank gardens, youth gardens, library gardens, shelter gardens, and so many more—our mission is to empower these projects to nourish their communities in a healthy way for them and the planet.

2022 marked the 8th annual offering of this program, and it’s been our most successful year to date. The 585 garden projects participating raised a jaw-dropping total of $467,663 through crowdfunding and challenge grants.

The Open Door Garden Project, Eagan, MN, $2175 raised in grants and crowdfunds

This year, we awarded 352 challenge grants and 389 planning grants, which include free access to SeedMoney’s online garden planning software (worth $50), 24/7 access to live technical support, and a library of how-to videos and blog posts.

Our amazing grantees represent a diverse range of projects from 47 US states and 40 countries. We’re truly humbled to participate in this global movement for positive change in our food systems and communities.

We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to:

  • The garden project leaders who dedicated their time and effort to participate in the SeedMoney Challenge—you are the real heroes making a difference in the world!
  • Our many funding partners and sponsors, especially Growing Interactive LLC, for the generous donation of their garden planning software. 
  • The over 4,000 individuals who donated to support projects in their home communities or on the other side of the globe. 

We look forward to seeing the fruits of everyone’s labors over the course of the growing season and welcoming you to join the 2023 SeedMoney Challenge which has already started accepting applications.
