Giving Back: A Deserving Garden Project

February 23, 2016

One of our teams’ earliest dreams was to have the ability to give back to the community, especially through youth education.  We have made those dreams a reality because of the support we have received from our customers & community.  Our latest outreach project was very special to us & we feel that this is the most important service we can offer.  Our GreenDreams team joined forces with Cissy Brady, a superstar youth educator who manages & teaches on a 1acre ecological garden at Learning Gate School in Tampa, FL.  


We learned about our latest volunteer project through a mutual friend, who informed us of a need for some garden guidance at the Metropolitan ministries campus in downtown Tampa.  Metropolitan ministries is a nonprofit center that works with poor & homeless families providing counseling, schooling, housing food and career development opportunities.


During our visit we worked with in small groups (around 50 kids) ranging from ages 4 to 10, to fill six raised beds with compost, weeded existing beds, and planted a variety of vegetables and herbs. Everyone involved was so grateful for the truckload of compost we brought to help this deserving group stay successful with their garden endeavors.  The families & volunteers learned a lot and had a great time, judging by the pictures of these smiling faces.
