NRDC just announced the first annual Growing Green awards to honor the work of a Food Producer, a Business Leader and a Thought Leader in the sustainable agriculture world. And check this out: the food producer would win 10,000 BUCKS.

The following three categories are eligible to apply:
The deadline is quick: applications are due no later than February 6, 2009, so hop to it! Visit NRDC’s website for information on the nomination process.
