About the Program

Growing Communities. Improving Lives.

First introduced in 2012, Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities is a program aimed at strengthening rural communities by equipping local non-profit organizations with funds to carry out much-needed community work. The aim is for farmers to help improve the lives of many people living in rural communities. Bayer Crop Science will provide a total of 66 grants, each valued at $2,500, to charitable and not-for-profit groups nominated by farmers. Canadian farmers have applied on behalf of agricultural societies, 4-H clubs, playgrounds, daycares and school projects, community sporting organizations, libraries and health/service groups.

Applications for 2022 to open April 4, 2022
