The Vegetable Free Breeding Award 2015 was initiated by the Humane Earth Foundation to identify, reward and inform about the work of home gardeners or professional vegetable growers in original vegetable creation.
It is the vocation of the Humane Earth Foundation, a private Swiss Foundation to support the work of associations defending the environment, at European level, by awarding them grants. We are indeed convinced that the role of these associations is essential: very often, they are the only ones that raise the alarm, advocate the necessary changes, and put forward constructive alternatives.
The Foundation's board of trustees decided to launch this Award, and to allocate the means necessary, as an extension to its activities in support of organic farming and the conservation of old vegetable and cereal varieties.
This contest, which will take place during the year 2015, at the European level, will be rewarded with:
* one 5,000 euros award for professional vegetable growers
* one 3,000 euros award for home gardeners
All details related to those awards and how to participate are available on the website http://freebreeding.org
*WE WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD PASS ON THIS CALL FOR APPLICATIONS AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE IN YOUR NETWORKS*
