We use our community garden fund to buy supplies for groups who have formed solid relationships and thoughtful plans to create growing spaces. Our first recipient is RISE the Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality. Do you want to help them create this garden at a home for handicapped men who would otherwise be homeless? drop them a line or contribute here. For this first project, we will pay any transaction fees and 100% of your donation will go to supplies for this garden.Download the PDF to Read More
