A special thanks to Whole Foods:
for the food for the spring gather, sponsoring a “bag day” for funds used to purchase seeds and potting soil, and for the seeds and food that you’ll see at the 2015 Spring gather.
GROW (formerly the P-patch trust) has served as a fiscal sponsor for SGGN. We are so grateful for this help. (Accounting n’ stuff isn’t our strongest suit: we’re gardeners at heart. So GROW’s help has been very welcome.) Want to know more about them? Start with the Seattle Foundation’s review. Want to donate? Funds should be sent to the P Patch Trust. Tools should be sent to your closest P Patch, community, or faith-based garden.
You can learn much, much more about the p-patch program (including how to apply for a p-patch) (and there’s also wonderful resources for those who want to garden organically, save seeds, plan a planting and harvest schedule.) And so we also say a loud THANK YOU to the City of Seattle for its desire to connect us all. (Do visit and join the email listserves.)
Some of you may recall that we funded a planner to assist us with figuring out how to move forward. As part of this process we learned a lot about the nonprofit Seattle Tilth that we hadn’t known: and we are IMPRESSED with the scope and mindfulness of this organization. And it’s not just us who’ve noticed: as Valerie Easton so eloquently explained in a recent special to the Seattle Times. So Tilth: THANK YOU from the advisory board at SGGN!
