Funded Projects

2018 Investments in Farming, Reforestation and Renewable Energy

Five local organisations have been announced as the recipients of $40,000 in grant funding provided by Santos Organics as part of their ongoing grants program.

The funding sees environmental investment injected into the strengthening of the Northern Rivers Young Farmers Alliance’s website platform to support young farmers, infrastructure development at Byron Bay Herb Nursery, materials required to develop the Byron Bay Reforestation Project, and funds to support the Repower Byron Shire project driven by the collaborative effort of Zero Emissions Byron, COREM and Enova Energy.

Further to these projects, local charity and social project Comfort for Kids has gained funding for a two-part program to support 200 vulnerable Northern Rivers children with sleep support, and an online course for the parents and carers to better understand the health benefits of high quality sleep.

General Manager Michael Lyon said “we received a huge number of applications this year and would have loved to support so many of the projects. We’d like to say a big thank you to all the applicant organisations, to all our shoppers for making this grant funding possible and to our wonderful staff whose donations Santos have matched to make this grant funding round possible.”
