YardSprout entered the Changemakers Powering Economic Opportunity: Create a World that Works competition, which gives out 5 prizes of $50,000 each. eBay Foundation and Ashoka’s Changemakers created this online competition to “find the world’s most innovative, market-based solutions that create economic opportunity and generate employment for disadvantaged populations.”
YardSprout wants to create economic opportunity for hundreds of thousands of gardeners and farmers and millions of residents by helping people grow food in yards at their homes, schools, businesses, and beyond.
