Capital Region Youth Tennis Foundation, Inc.'s Fundraiser:

15LOVE's Hoop House Garden Project

We are raising money to buy 10 hoop houses (mini green houses) to keep our garden program running for inner city youth throughout the winter! All money raised in this fundraiser will go to purchasing these hoop houses and to maintain our youth garden program.

Each year, cases of obesity and diabetes grow in the inner city. Due to inefficient access to fresh produce, higher organic costs, and poor nutrition education, many youth in the inner city never grow up being healthy let alone knowing how to be healthy.

One of the best ways to deal with these growing health concerns is by giving youth hands on experience growing their own food. Urban gardening programs have proven to engage kids to make better eating decisions and educate them about nutrition.

At 15LOVE, we have a 10 bed garden that our participants come in to plant, maintain, and harvest each year. With the cold winters in Albany, New York, however, we need to raise the funds to buy hoop houses (mini green houses) to keep our garden running earlier in the year. This will allow our participants to come in sooner and grow more produce even during winter months.
