The first Giving Garden, being established in Conway in collaboration with Starting Point, aims to produce 800+ pounds of vegetables, herbs and pollinator-friendly flowers in its first season. It will be managed with organic, low-tech, high-yield methods. The entire harvest will be donated to local organizations including Starting Point, Kismet Rock Foundation, Vaughan Community Services and other local food pantries.
How can you help? We are looking for MONEY and EQUIPMENT DONATIONS to get us started and VOLUNTEERS to keep it running all season long. This is an all volunteer initiative, so every dollar donated will cover direct expenses for getting the garden established - thank you!
