NRDC Growing Green Awards

Received by email:

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has just announced this year’s Growing Green Awards 2010, a sustainable food award contest hosted by NRDC to honor extraordinary individual contributions to the sustainable food world.


NRDC would like to attract as many applicants as possible in order to garner attention and support for the sustainable food movement. We've also added a 4th category special to this year, Water Steward, and we are very excited to see the submissions for this new category.


We have a great group of panelists this year who will be selecting the winners. The panelists include Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, California Secretary of Agriculture, A.G. Kawamura and others.

More about the Growing Green Awards is available on the NRDC website:

Nominations are due by December 4, 2009

$10,000 cash prize to be awarded in the Food Producer category

Through this national award, NRDC will recognize extraordinary contributions that advance ecologically integrated farming practices, climate stewardship, water stewardship, farmland preservation, and social responsibility from farm to fork.

A Growing Green Award will be given to an outstanding individual in each of four categories, including Food Producer, Business Leader, Thought Leader, and Water Steward. A $10,000 cash prize will be awarded in the Food Producer category and all winners will be widely celebrated through outreach to media and NRDC’s networks.
