Please consider giving generously to support the Upper Merion Community Garden, opening in Spring 2018! All funds go directly to establish and operate the Garden.
This grassroots initiative is spearheaded by Upper Merion residents and its purpose is to benefit the whole community in multiple ways!
Here are just a few benefits to a Community Garden:
• Community gardens increase a sense of community ownership and stewardship.
• Community gardens foster and strengthen identity and spirit.
• Community gardens provide opportunities to meet neighbors!
• Community gardens allow folks without land the opportunity to garden!
• Community gardens provide access to nutritionally rich foods that may otherwise be unavailable to low-income folks.
Did you know there are100+ families in King of Prussia that are food insecure? One of the key aims of the Community Garden is to provide fresh produce for folks who could use a hand. It’s easy to see how the Garden can be a vital part of the community for years to come! Your giving will make a real difference!
There’s lots to do to get the garden ready for the Spring opening! For instance, the Garden fence (to keep deer and varmints out) will cost approx. $7K. Your donation goes to Upper Merion Township Foundation, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, and may be tax deductible.
Let us know your suggestions to help spread the word about the campaign.
Now, let's make it happen!
