SOIL Love: The Summer of Awards
Most of the time it feels like we putter away in relative obscurity. We are a small grassroots organization getting a lot done on a little grit, good luck, and perseverance. But every so often we get a bit of recognition for our work and it feels great! And this summer we are have been truly blown away by a flurry of good news for SOIL. We are so honored to announce that this summer SOIL has earned not one but four incredible recognitions!
- Global Innovation Award from the EAT Stockholm Food: The Global Innovation Award aims to acknowledge and celebrate significant innovation and social enterprise along the food value chain – from production to end product, consumption and waste disposal. EAT GIA winners must meet a local or global unmet need, successfully address multiple challenges within the food-health-sustainability nexus, demonstrate commercial feasibility and scalability, and bring meaningful impact to a community.
