As Spring quickly approaches, the garden is being readied to wake from it's Winter slumber. Plans are being made for a fabulous Garden Kick-Off event in April. This is the day, with community support, that we will all roll up our sleeves and get to work constructing the garden. However, it will not be all work and no play. We plan to have light refreshments, guest animals, Cape Cod Cubs team players and crafts for the kids.
In order for this event and our new garden to be a success, we are starting to fund raise to help get this garden up and running. Even though we have plans to recycle and repurpose as many items possible, the harsh reality is that starting a garden does require funding and donations of goods.
Did you know that every little bit does help? The greatest thing is what may seem insignificant to you, could make a huge difference to the garden. Would you be willing to donate the change that is loose in your car? Do you have any spare garden tools that you would be willing to part with? Could you donate an hour of your time each week? Do you own a truck that could help us transport items? Do you have a family member in the gardening/landscaping business? Are you a good writer? Can you bake? Do you like to pick vegetables? Are you a good salesperson? Are you handy?
Supporting the garden is easy, when you think outside the box. The key to success is not always financial. Sometimes it is more about the experience and what we can do together as a community.
Our garden will reach over 400 children this growing season. The "seeds" we plant in these children will last their lifetime. Won't you consider joining us?
