The NRDC recently announced its fourth annual Growing Green Awards to recognize fabulous individuals doing great work with sustainable food. If you're working to "advance ecologically integrated farming practices, climate stewardship, water stewardship, farmland preservation, and social responsibility from farm to fork," then you could be the winner of a cash prize and the guest of honor at a May 2012 event to benefit the NRDC in San Francisco.
A Growing Green Award will be given to an outstanding individual in each of four categories, including Food Producer, Business Leader, Food Justice Leader, and Young Food Leader, with cash prizes of $10,000, $2,500 and $2,500 respectively. Award selections will be made by an independent panel of sustainable food experts.
The deadline is December 9, 2011.
