We have two wonderful accomplishments to share with you today.
First, thanks so much to everyone who donated during the month of August. We exceeded our matching funds grant goal to raise $10,620 (which makes $20,620 including the matching funds)! This generosity supports so many empowering projects that we provide to our community, which leads to our second celebration…
Last Saturday as part of our ‘Mini Garden Extravaganza’ event, we installed a whopping 78 gardens in one day! This brings us to 241 total gardens installed for the season. Huge thanks and appreciation go out to all of the amazing volunteers who joined forces to make this possible.
It’s been heartwarming to read the messages of thanks from those who received mini gardens on Saturday, and we wanted to share a few with you, since this would not have been possible without your support!
“In short, WOW! I absolutely love our mini garden. I am looking forward to seeing how the garden changes as it grows. As a first time gardener I really appreciate the size. Thank you for considering our family.” – Jacqueline
“I am so fortunate to have received a mini garden this past Saturday. Thank you to Cooperation Humboldt for affording my son and I the opportunity to learn and eat healthier. We can’t wait to watch them grow and one day cook with veggies from our own backyard!” – Natassia
“The garden is just the perfect size for me, and the timing for fall is spot on. And the greatest thing is I could never have done this for myself. With my arthritis it would be just too much. The young men who brought the pot and soil were so pleasant and a joy to meet. And the ladies with the plants were so swift and did a great job. A job well done by four of the nicest people I have met in quite a while.” – Tricia
“My family and I are so happy every time we look at our new garden. We are so grateful for the food and experiences we will get from this. Our community is amazing, Cooperation Humboldt you’ve really blessed us! Thank you.” – Khianna
“I was so excited and pleased that I was chosen to receive a mini garden. I am 67 and my wife is 66 and we live in a trailer park with limited space. This small garden will give us purpose and enjoyment in our lives. Thank you thank you very much.” – Ron
As always, we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions, comments or suggestions.
