MARYSVILLE, Ohio, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG) today announces the continuation of its GRO1000 Grassroots Grants award program to support community green space development. Grants are awarded to deserving not-for-profit civic organizations across the country and are part of a larger commitment the company has made to create more than 1,000 community gardens and green spaces in the U.S., Canada and Europe by 2018, the company's 150 th anniversary. To date, 406 community projects have been impacted by GRO1000.

"Gardens offer something very unique to our communities," said Jim King, Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer. "From providing better nutrition to encouraging environmental education, community green spaces help bring neighborhoods together."

The GRO1000 Grassroots Grant application for 2014 is available online at: http://www.GroGood.com/GiveBackToGro/Gro1000/Grassroots. Deadline for application submission is February 17, 2014, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Grants, which range from $500 to $1,500, are awarded based on community need, scope of project and long-term sustainability of the green space.

In conjunction with the grant application period, ScottsMiracle-Gro has launched Gro & Chat, an online community dedicated exclusively to the community garden movement. Gro & Chat ( Gro-Chat.com) was developed as a free online resource to support those who have a passion for community gardening, including previous and potential GRO1000 Grassroots Grants award recipients.

On January 24, ScottsMiracle-Gro and its partner the U.S. Conference of Mayors will announce the winners of its annual GRO1000 Showcase Grants, which are awarded to cities for the installation of innovative public gardens and green spaces within their communities.
