Volunteers in the Twin Ponds Giving Garden

The Giving Garden at Twin Ponds Community Garden is excited to announce that we have been accepted into a Challenge Grant. It is a race and we need your help to cross the finish line, which is $400. The first 75 organizations to reach $400 in donations will get a $400 match from Seedmoney.org.

Our slogan is "Giving Is Central". As volunteers, we raise organic vegetables for the Hopelink Food Bank serving Shoreline. In 2015, the garden produced 4,000+ pounds of fresh, pesticide-free, organic vegetables!

This is a new record for us and we look forward to besting this amount next year. Food from our garden means healthier living for some of Shoreline's most vulnerable populations. The Shoreline branch of Hopelink serves 390 to 440 families a month.

We also build community and foster an appreciation of food gardening by welcoming local schools, youth groups, church groups, and neighbors to join us on our mission to grow food. We appreciate the help and the excitement they bring to the garden.

Twin Ponds is still a developing garden. In 2015, or garden shed was broken into and many of our tools and supplies were taken. The result has been to make some of us feel like we are starting the garden all over again.Any funds raised will go to replacing and augmenting our tool and material supplies, seeds and seed starting materials, and soil amendments. It will also allow us to plan for future garden improvements.

The gardeners at the Twin Ponds Giving Garden ask for your support to reach our fundraising goal. Any amount is gladly welcomed and will be put to good use.
