Our GivingTuesday campaign has ended, but you can still support building our new outdoor classroom by going to https://charity.gofundme.com/tgp-outdoor-classroom
GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities.
You can help The Greenhouse Project build its new outdoor classroom! As TGP has grown, we have run out of adequate space and facilities needed to fully realize our mission of community empowerment through education. We struggle to accommodate the students and general public who rely on our greenhouse and surrounding gardens for educational projects. With more and more of our resources being dedicated to growing crops for the local population and flowers for our annual urban beautification project, it has become increasingly difficult to dedicate a space that properly integrates student groups for educational purposes.
Our open-air classroom will enable hands-on learning adjacent to the existing greenhouse facility and accommodate groups of students while making use of the necessary technologies for agricultural education. This structure will enhance our ability to carry out our educational missions and work more effectively with other instructors. It also will greatly improve our ability to grow more crops more safely and effectively by eliminating unnecessary traffic through the greenhouse.
Thank you, Nevada! #givingtuesday
