An outdoor technology company has opened this year’s greenspace grant program to qualifying nonprofits in Longmont and surrounding areas.

The Toro Company’s “Land. Water. Thrive.” initiative offers a Green Space Enhancement Grant to provide funding opportunities for qualifying nonprofits to revitalize and preserve outdoor spaces in their communities.

According to a release from the company, grants in previous years have gone toward building neighborhood gardens focused on sustainable agriculture, transforming neglected park spaces and playgrounds, educating communities on water conservation and more.

“We want to leave a sustainable impact on the communities we serve,” said Heather Hille, managing director of corporate affairs at The Toro Company. “By providing financial support and equipment to the nonprofits that serve our communities, we can help restore outdoor spaces and invest in the land for generations to come.”

Qualifying organizations for the program must be within 40 miles of a Toro Company location. Left Hand Robotics, at 950 S. Sherman St. in Longmont, is a Toro Company location.

Applications must be submitted by noon on July 31, with more information on the company’s website.
