Small food gardens and farms can play a big role in enhancing community food security, social and racial equity, climate resiliency, and public health. They can only do this, though, if they have the resources they need to thrive.

Our humble, small garden project is more than halfway through its 30-day fundraising campaign and we would like to request some of your resources here:


Our friends at SeedMoney, the nonprofit hosting our campaign, have 270 challenge grants available on a competitive basis. The more we are able to raise, the larger the grant we can qualify to receive.

It's a unique, once-a-year opportunity to leverage local resources so that we can attract investment from outside our community.

Every donation helps, no matter how small.
