THE STORY:

EDIBLE SCHOOLYARD NYC wrote -

NOVEMBER 24 THROUGH DECEMBER 1
GIVING TUESDAY

Newman’s Own Foundation is matching every dollar we raise up to $10,000!

RIGHT NOW is the best time to help write the recipe for a healthier tomorrow.

Help Us Grow A Garden in Day

Give a Gift, Get a Gift: Give $100 and we’ll send you a newly released, signed cookbook from one of today’s hottest chefs!

Give $250 to receive a cool ESYNYC tote filled with goodies, including a signed cookbook, ESYNYC apron and some extra treats!

Numbers are limited, so act fast.

Children, like gardens, thrive when you give them what they need to grow. But for too many NYC school kids, access to fresh, nutritious food is an inaccessible luxury.

Edible Schoolyards NYC is hard at work growing the next generation of healthy children. Research shows that empowering young people to grow and prepare their own food can have lasting effects on their eating habits. We’re partnering with NYC public schools to build gardens and kitchen classrooms where children gain the knowledge they need to make healthy food choices for themselves, their families, their communities and the environment.

Edible Schoolyard NYC is growing, too.

In the last year, we’ve grown our reach into four new schools in low-income areas throughout the city, allowing us to impact thousands more students with our seed-to-table education.

With your support, we can grow a new garden in each of them.

Come on! Let’s grow a garden (or four) in a day!

$10,000 can build an entire school garden!  Here are some of the resources it takes:

$25 = one watering can 

$50 = one garden hose 

$150 = set of 30 trowels, enough for a whole class

$200 = seeds!

$250 = set of 5 children’s gardening gloves

$500 = compost system 

$750 = set of 7 above-ground planters

$1,000 = 225 bags of organic soil

$3,000 = a water harvesting system  

TOTAL COST for One Incredible, Edible School Garden = $10,000

Thank you for your support!
