Helping communities across Canada sustainably grow and benefit from green spaces together.

Let's Continue to Grow Together in 2022

With urban and economic development at an all-time high, we desperately need to protect and grow our collective connection to nature, to the environment and to each other. Scotts Canada Ltd. is pleased to present Gro for good as our effort to keep the spirit of community and connection to nature alive in Canada.

We are committed to supporting green space solutions that improve communities throughout Canada and help our youth and communities enjoy the benefits of gardening; benefits, such as, encouraging healthy eating habits while learning how to grow your own food and the health benefits that come from being outdoors and interacting with nature and other members of the community.




Each year, we award grants to deserving communities, schools and non-profit civic organizations seeking to develop sustainable gardens and green spaces.
