Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to everyone of our followers! Now that 2010 is officially here, we are beginning the process of selecting our backyard and community garden families for the Spring and Summer months. We are extremely excited to begin this process as we expand our community garden from 20 families in 2009 to 40 this year, and we venture into the backyards of at least twelve homes around our community.
We are asking for your help in this process as we begin the search for new families. We've put together a pretty thorough application, which you can download and print by clicking above, and we are officially launching the recruitment campaign this week. We will be reaching out to area churches and need-based agencies to spread the word, as well as using general word-of-mouth advertising. This is where you come in.
If you know of a friend our family member who would benefit from our program (more information can be found on the sidebar at right), please recommend them to us, or pass on this information to them. We are extremely flexible on the application procedure, a la how to submit the completed packet. We will walk, drive, bike or skip most places around this county to pick up applications to make sure everyone who wants to apply is able to. We will also walk potential applicants through the application process if needed.
We appreciate your help, and look forward to hearing from you!
