Everett Community Growers (ECG) has done a lot this year to engage our growing community:
We have constructed new plots at our Florence St. and Tremont St. community gardens to accommodate
families from our wait list!
We expanded our growing season at the Northern Strand Community Farm and donated hundreds of pounds of fresh veggies to the Bread of Life food pantry
We conducted a land inventory to assess the suitability of vacant land for urban agriculture, and we are embarking now on a Community Food Assessment
in partnership with the City of Everett to learn more about what we can do to improve healthy food access in Everett!
TODAY, we are asking for your support through a crowdfunding campaign. Your support will benefit the operations of all three existing sites
and allow us to offer more multi-lingual/multi-cultural programming with and for our growers,
providing crucial support to overhead costs
ECG has no full-time staff and operates nearly exclusively on volunteer labor. More information is available at our campaign page:
If you aren't able to donate to the campaign, can you think of three people in your network who would be interested in becoming first-time donors to ECG? We're asking you to share this link with three people and ask them to donate whatever they can (even $5 or $10 helps!) TODAY so that we have a good chance of winning a challenge grant! Please SHARE this link with your networks:
You can also share our Facebook post which is available here!
THANK YOU so much for your help and for all of the various ways in which you support ECG!
