BENEFITING: SEVEN WOMEN PHILANTHROPISTS
We built our first two greenhouses last week and have already filled both of them with farm stand and educational growing space. (Farm Stand Space: space allotted for growing produce for sale at cost at a weekly farm stand and for community CSA shares. Educational Growing Space: demonstration space for winter semester school outreach programs.)
We have been receiving an overwhelming number of requests for private community garden plots in the greenhouses so community members can grow their own food for their families all winter long. There is currently no space like this available in Baltimore City and we think it's a pretty great idea, don't you? All we need is $5,000 to make it happen! $5,000 funds approx. 3 10' x 20' greenhouses and 15 plots. We will also be spending these funds on extra community tool kits (a gardening bag consisting of a trowel, gloves, seeds, watering can, seedling tray, twine and scissors).
$750 donation builds a 10' x 20' greenhouse!
$150 donation funds one greenhouse community garden plot for one year
$50 donation funds one complete community tool kit
