This fundraisers soul purpose is to get a collection truck for The Giving Tree Garden Project.

The Giving Tree Garden Project of Bakersfield

Mission: To design, establish and grow a garden in as many communities, schools and outreach programs as possible, with minimum cost and maximum benefits. Emphasis will be on education, nutrition, health and personal well being.

Goals: Once gardens are in place and producing, The Giving Tree will connect the new generation of urban farmers to local Farmers Markets, community customers, and other resources to help create a positive cash flow for the growers, institutions and outreach programs. The Giving Tree will regularly hold fundraisers and festivals revolving around food, music and art to promote a positive cultural involvement with the program.

Benefits: Established gardens will bring an abundance of nutritious food, educational resources, community involvement and an improved quality of life to all of those involved. Potential to raise funds to continually support the gardens and the needs of the groups who grow them.

The Project Includes: A Personalized garden design with emphasis on community involvement, education and maximum yield of food. Free education curriculum to enhance learning and knowledge. Free recycled garden materials to help cut the cost of implementation. Discounted access to irrigation services, soils, fruit trees and seeds. Active volunteer groups and management to support all levels of the process. Fundraising and promotional development to bring added support and funds to each project.

Costs: Depends on size of the garden, available resources and materials on hand. All Projects are based on a sliding scale as some projects have a greater need than others. This Project is designed to fit all budgets.
