If those groundhogs are good for anything (other than eating our garden goodies)….then one thing is for sure….Spring is coming!
We are so grateful for all of those who have supported our mission in so many ways. Some show up at the garden to lend a helping hand, some share their individual talents behind the scenes, some bake goodies for those working in the gardens, and some support our programs with a financial donation. If you feel that you would like to support our good work in the community by making an online donation, click the following link for a secure way to donate: paypal.me/ProjectGrow
All funds stay directly in your community and your donation is tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)3 organization.
Our mission is the seed of our intent, “to cultivate opportunity, education, and inspiration in our community to value, access, and grow healthy food.”
We continue to:
- Build, expand, and improve our community teaching gardens
- Educate the youth of our region by teaching them how to grow their own food, maintain healthy gardens, and prepare their own snacks and meals!
- Grow healthy food to share with everyone in our community, including local pantries and soup kitchens, doing our very best to make sure that we are all fed (especially those who are food insecure)
We are always recruiting garden volunteers as we begin to plan for next season. We start planting from seed in the greenhouse in late February and need lots of help in May as we get plants into the ground. Volunteers needed for watering, mowing, fence mending, weeding, harvesting and local pantry delivery May-September. All hands on deck again in late September when we put the “beds to bed” for the winter again. That job involves a lot of shoveling leaf mulch onto the beds and planting garlic for next Spring!
We are always looking for volunteers to lead seasonal food preservation workshops or teach classes on interesting subjects related to gardening and nutrition throughout the year.
