BENEFITING: HAND IN HAND
EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2014
Greetings / مرحباً / שלום !
My name is Grace, and I have been the Garden Specialist at Project Harmony since 2012, when we instituted our first community gardening program. It was a summer of record high temperatures and even higher ambitions! In 2013, the weather was more forgiving, and the garden flourished. In addition to building beds, planting vegetables, watering, pruning, and harvesting, we also engage in educational programming that develops our campers' understanding of nutrition, food justice, energy conservation, and global resource distribution. The experiential education that goes on in the garden promotes creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork, and it's good, clean (well, maybe not so clean) fun!
To keep the garden growing and the educational programming flowing in 2014, we need some materials designated for this particular project. The money that you donate to this fundraiser will go specifically to the Project Harmony Community Garden, which is also maintained by the members of the Hand in Hand community throughout the academic year. Thank you in advance for your contribution, feel free to share widely, and stay tuned for updates about the garden's progress!
