The Ladder Garden
Organized by: Justin Schneider
When I was growing up my mom worked 2 jobs to support our family, but she had to go to the food bank a few times to make sure we had meals until her next paycheck, I saw how much it hurt for her to not be able to provide our family with all of the essentials.
I am an Agronomist by profession with an emphasis on crop production, and plant nutrition. Last year I helped with a community garden and donated the produce to the local food bank, I saw first hand how short they were on fresh food and how many people they served. I then decided to donate the food out of my personal garden to a food bank, and now I feel the need to help more food banks with my plant raising skills, but I need more land to plant a larger garden. I am calling the Fundraiser the ladder garden because I want to help people out of a financial hole. If I could raise the 20,000 I would be able to put a down payment on a piece of land and fix up some equipment that would allow me manage a larger garden.
