ScottsMiracle-Gro Celebrates First Day Of Spring With GRO1000 Garden And Green Space Grant Awards

MARYSVILLE, Ohio, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Following a long and cold winter for much of the U.S., The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG) today marks the arrival of Spring with the announcement of the 2014 GRO1000 Grassroots Grant winners. More than 90 grants were awarded today to deserving non-profit organizations nationwide to begin or maintain public gardens and green spaces within their communities. The Grassroots Grants are part of the larger GRO1000 Gardens and Green Space Program, which is ScottsMiracle-Gro's commitment to create more than 1,000 community gardens and green spaces by 2018.

"We celebrate the many organizations across the U.S. that are making a difference and inspiring their local communities through gardening," said Jim King, Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer for ScottsMiracle-Gro. "Through GRO1000, it is our privilege  to bring the many benefits of gardens and green spaces to deserving communities."

GRO 1000 funds have supported local beautification projects, public service opportunities and produce donation in more than 400 communities across the U.S., Canada and Europe since 2011. The grants are awarded to non-profit, civic organizations that are working to create or sustain public greenscapes in their communities. A full list of this year's recipients can be found at www.GroGood.com/GiveBacktoGro/GRO10000/Grassroots.

In addition to the Grassroots Grants, ScottsMiracle-Gro and its national partners, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Plant A Row for the Hungry, the Garden Writers Association, the National Gardening Association, and Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, will build public community gardens and green spaces in Houston; Mesa, Ariz.; Minneapolis; Miramar, Fla.; and Tallahassee, Fla. in 2014.
