Grants for Plants is a new program being developed by Eden Regeneration Alliance to provide support to people wishing to establish new food forest systems. This project also has a research component to evaluate the potential benefits of investment in perennial crops. In exchange for Grants for Plants dollars (free perennial crops such as fruit trees, nut trees, berries, and other perennials) participants agree to complete the before survey (contained on this application) as well as periodic surveys over the course of the project. Completion of surveys (after plants grants are received) will be rewarded with incentives including more plant grant dollars to purchase new fruit trees, nut trees, berries, and other perennials. Up to $500 in plants per site applicant will be available in the initial round with additional plant grant dollars offered as rewards for completing periodic surveys.
