Transforming Lives in the Garden
The Garden Club Project
Support for The Garden Club Project will help purchase fencing to protect produce and infrastructure in the Parsons Avenue urban garden.
Thanks to you and other generous donors, The Garden Club Project is able to protect produce and infrastructure in its Parsons Avenue urban garden with a new fence.
The Garden Club Project was founded in March 2020 by teenpreneur Te'Lario Watkins II to help end hunger and encourage kids to eat healthier. The organization has donated more than 300 pounds of produce to the community, helped a local school start a small garden, and supplied more than 300 seed kits to schools, farmers markets, a homeless shelter, and the Ronald McDonald House. In the Parsons Avenue urban garden, students will learn how to build a raised bed, prepare healthy meals, and grow and market different produce items, as well as learn about careers in STEM and agriculture.
Thank you for enabling The Garden Club Project to continue improving our local food system and making our community healthier.
We are Better Together!
“More than a garden. More than a club. More than a project. It's a hands-on multigenerational response to food insecurity in a practical way in areas in desperate need of hope and nutrition. This team of family and community supporters has evolved from a single focus to an all-encompassing perspective from the ground up. They're learning as they go, sharing as they can, and developing growing spaces that feed both the body and the spirit. I fully support their efforts.”
