Agricultural communities play a vital role in feeding the global population. For Toro, we are committed to supporting growers and organizations in their effort to apply more efficient and sustainable agricultural practices. Now, we are asking for your help in recognizing those that promote sustainable practices in agricultural communities across America with our all-new ‘Ready. Set. GROW!’ grant initiative, in which we will be awarding $15,000 to non-profit organizations to help further their efforts. You might recognize an organization installing drip irrigation in a community garden to more efficiently use water resources; a local non-profit committed to furthering sustainable agricultural practices; or, an organization training military veterans in modern agriculture technologies.
