Nominate a Green Genius for $10,000 NRDC Award

I like the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC). This environmental action group gits 'er done!

The NRDC's Growing Green Awards are back!

from Jonathan Kaplan's NRDC blog:

"If you have a favorite farmer or sustainable food leader, nominate them for the 2010 Growing Green Awards. Applications are due December 4, 2009, and a $10,000 prize will go to the winning green Food Producer.

"When we announced the first annual Growing Green Awards last year, there might have been a hint of trepidation in the office here. What if it didn't work? What if no one applied? What if the applicants weren't green enough?

Well, 150 nominations later, I can tell you that those worries are over. We were blown away by all the amazing things farmers are doing on their land to grow our food while taking care of mother nature at the same time; business leaders who are pouring on the innovation and using their supply chains to effect change; and thought leaders who are teaching all of us about more sustainable food from farm to fork."
