THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
What an amazing 8 week campaign we had! We raised over $85,000 worth of pledges, received media coverage both locally and across the country, and have heard from schools far and wide that want to take an active role in reducing childhood obesity and improving the food system, by being a part of our Healthy Growing school garden program.
As a result of this great success, the matching foundation has decided to give us the full $100,000!
This is so amazing, as these funds will allow us to scale our reach to more schools and community organizations across the country.
- Over the past few weeks, our team has been building gardens, delivering garden tools, and shoveling compost at schools across the Bay Area (some photos below — more will be uploaded to our Facebook page).
- Due to the demand we’ve received across the country for school gardens, we’re designing a new model dedicated to developing school gardens for anyone, anywhere.
- We already have a pilot group for this new model, but we’ll soon by able to help schools anywhere in the U.S. So if you know a school that’s interested in a school garden program, encourage them to fill out our Healthy Growing registration form.
