Growing Community Campaign
We are launching our Growing Community Campaign and our goal in the next 3 months is to raise $7,000 to broaden the support for community members and fully fund the Community Garden Network Assistant position for 2021. This will allow us to:
Have immediate impact on the amount of food community gardens have the capacity to grow this year,
Assess the needs of individual community gardens and help them to acquire resources and grant funds,
Mobilize our volunteer base within the Community Garden Network,
Host additional community work days in the 30 + gardens who are part of the network
Increase attendance at our free workshops
Set up multiple locations for our seed library
What does Growing Community look like in practice? Bountiful Cities centers equity in the work we do. For many years we have supported communities wanting to grow food and have sovereignty in a system that marginalizes Black and Brown people.
If you are able to contribute towards this phase of our community effort please donate here. If that’s not possible, you can assist by sharing this with friends and family, and anyone you know who is interested in long-term food security.
Thanks so much and feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have. Cathy@BountifulCities.org
