Fertile GroundWorks wants to send a giant THANK YOU to everyone who supported our recent plant sale.
You helped us raise almost $9,000 to support our mission to teach, grow and give. Your support allowed us to give 1,230 plants plus compost and fertilizer to local school gardens. In addition, these funds will allow us to continue our work to grow 20,000 pounds of healthy fruit and vegetables each year to improve the food security of our neighbors in need.
We were happy to see and hear from so many new and returning customers and volunteers throughout the sale. Among the praises we received about the quality of the seedlings and the kindness of our helpful volunteers, one customer’s comment was especially meaningful to us. She said that our mission to provide organic and nutritious vegetables to those in need is how change starts in the world. “What a stupendous and wonderful endeavor. It is fantastic to see all the volunteers and community working help support others in need!”
Thank you! We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. We hope you all can come back out to the garden this summer to see how things are growing and take part in our new U-pick produce service. Stay tuned for more information about that and other news from the garden!
With sincerest gratitude,
Brenda and the Fertile GroundWorks crew
