Why get involved? Did you know about the community garden movement? People all over the country are turning to community gardens to help save money, eat healthier and build a sense of togetherness through gardening. As a leader in the lawn and garden industry, Fiskars believes in contributing to the growing community garden effort and all it represents — creative expression, beautiful outdoor spaces, civic and community collaboration, healthy hand-grown food and sustainable living.

To help support the community garden movement, we’ve created Project Orange Thumb. Since its inception, Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb has provided over $1.3 million to 140 community groups and helped to complete fourteen garden makeovers in the U.S. and Canada. Learn more about our grants and garden makeovers, or apply for your own grant or makeover.
