YAY a very Happy Giving Tuesday!
Everyone’s generosity played a part in generating donations totaling $10,000.00. Adding all those donations to a $5,000.00 match Community Health & Education Foundation (CHEF) allowed us to reach our goal of raising $15,000 this Giving Tuesday.
During these trying times your donations are extra special to us. It is especially heartening to know that our community supports us and our efforts to help our neighbors as we all try to muddle through as best we can.
Thank you all for helping us continue our mission to TEACH, GROW and GIVE in our community!
Fertile GroundWorks is a nonprofit with the mission to encourage, empower, and teach individuals and communities to grow healthy, nutritious food, organically and sustainably. The Garden of Grace, our principle teaching garden, is located in Livermore on land owned and provided for our use by Asbury United Methodist Church. Produce from our educational garden is given to local community kitchens and food pantries to help feed those in need.
We grow over 20,000 pounds of organic produce each year to feed the poor and homeless in Alameda County’s Tri-Valley region.
Volunteers learn from experienced gardeners on-site. We use sustainable, manual techniques that you can apply to your own garden. Groups are always welcome.
We provide education and support to local schools, corporations, and other community groups to help them create and sustainably operate their own gardens.
Our annual Plant Sale Fundraiser and seasonal You-Pick Market Garden make our organic produce available to the local community.
