GROWING OUR FUTURE: Free gardening kits for youth.

Hi everyone! I started a project that, with enough funds and donations, will provide youth ages 18 and under in Bemidji and the surrounding areas with free Gardening/ Seed Starting kits. Included in these kits will be: •Container Friendly seeds •Pots and/or Grow Bags •Reusable or biodegradable seed starting trays •Reusable spray bottles •soil or Coir Pellets •Plant Markers/Labels •Paper Bags (to put everything in) •papers and pamphlets on sustainability and the environment •hints, tips and How-to’s on growing produce. •access to 2+ phone numbers and emails for experienced local gardeners to ask for advice or help. And with enough funds (in order of importance): •Fixture Size Grow Light Bulbs •small gardening tools •Gardening Gloves HERE ARE MORE POTENTIAL WAYS YOUR DONATION CAN HELP: Your donation has the potential to help this project in so many ways, but these are just a few: •it allows me to purchase supplies and put together more and more kits to be distributed to youth in and around Bemidji •it helps me pay for gas and delivery costs to get kits to those who are unable to pick up •it will help pay for advertisements, if need be. Each kit has the potential to positively impact a person’s life, whether it be teaching them the importance of sustainability and caring for the environment or how empowering it feels to grow their own food. Every donation helps and thank you SO MUCH for your help in “Growing Our Future.” Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! **All Donors get a mention on social media and those who donate $100+ will be listed as a sponsor on all printed materials.
