Help Out!

Help Your Neighbors and Community by Donating!

Hoping to maximize our grant money, we are reaching out to the community to see if they have an excess of any of the items below that they would like to donate to the garden. Sometimes these are things just lying around your yard or garage that you have been hoping to get rid of. If you think you might be able to help, whether by donating or another way, please contact us by email, phone, or the contact form on the ‎’Contact Us’ page to make arrangements.

Items needed:

    • Viable seeds (Not old)
    • Tomato cages
    • Pots (Especially 3-5″ square)
    • Organic fertilizer (Dr. Earth, etc.)
    • Organically approved slug bait (Ferrous sulfate)
    • Wooden stakes/poles (Anything rectangular or cylindrical 1′ – 6′ long)
    • Wire (For fencing, vegetable support cages, trellis making….)
    • Gardening tools (Trowels, shovel, spade, pitchfork, trowel, hoe, watering can)
    • Gloves
    • Bricks and Pavers (Have proven to be very useful in various projects)
    • Slider windows (for greenhouse/cold frames)
    • Gravel
    • Bamboo and other materials for trellises
    • Usable cedar lumber (for bed construction – think old deck boards in usable condition, etc.)
    • Plant starts (particularly edibles and natives)

* If you are considering donating an item, or have an item that you believe the garden could use but is not on the list, please contact us and make arrangements before leaving it at the garden. Occasionally we find an item that appears to be a possible donation but without having been contacted by anyone we are simply left wondering. Sometimes the item is not needed and without any contact information we are unable to return it to its owner.

We are very appreciative of the following donors for their generous gifts. The gifts are especially meaningful because they come from our community and have a history behind them.
