My Husband and I are Urban Gardeners. We've recently moved from Washington, DC to a small city in Central Virginia. We fell in love with our home at-first-sight not because of the size or the rooms, but because of the yard space. We immediately thought "Garden"!

So we started to garden. We turned over soil with a shovel and planted seeds. We watered and tended. All while listening to our 13-year-old and his friends try to figure out what kinds of jobs they could get over the summer. You see, they like Laser Tag and burgers.

I've offered the 3 boys an opportunity to garden with me for minimum wage and at first they thought I was kidding until they donned the extra gloves to sift out rocks, sprinkle epsom salt, or turn over compost. They earned that $15...2 hours of work. And I paid it out of my own pocket. They liked the work and liked even more the idea of being able to bring fresh fruits and veggies home at harvest.

So, I thought to myself, "Self...how can we raise enough money to provide these young men with a steady income without having to pay money we don't necessarily have to spend? How can we share with these young men the importance of growing their own food and taking pride in what they put in their bodies?"

So I turn to you all, My Potential Donors, for help. I would like to hire the 3 young men (all 13-years-old) for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week at $7.50 per hour. For 6 weeks (most of their Summer Break). This will come to a total of $1350!
