Louisville Grows is growing its Healthy House campus and we need your help!
Seeds and Starts is Louisville’s Grows biggest fundraiser. The sale of vegetable, herb, and flower starts, berry bushes, and fruit trees has been based in The Peoples Garden in the Shawnee neighborhood since 2014. Seeds and Starts offers low cost, organically grown plants to Louisville residents and allows Louisville Grows to support many neighborhood community gardens through micro grants for infrastructure, supplies, and technical assistance.
Looking forward to 2020 and beyond, Louisville Grows is listening to community members and transitioning ownership of The People’s Garden to the Shawnee neighborhood. As this transition happens, Louisville Grows must relocate the Seeds and Starts greenhouse next to the Healthy House in the Portland neighborhood.
Relocation of the greenhouse next to Louisville Grows headquarters provides opportunities to increase community education programs, to earn revenue year-round from the sale of seasonal plants, and to grow deeper roots in the Portland neighborhood.
This is where you come in – we need the support of the entire Louisville community to make the greenhouse move a success!
