Two clicks can help us change the future! The garden program at Hillcrest (youth correctional facility outside of Salem, Oregon) is entered in the Seeds of Change grant competition. A win would allow us to rebuild the decrepit raised beds and repair the irrigation system. In turn, the garden is helping us repair lives! These young offenders not only learn about gardening (and the taste of really good veggies!), they are also learning life skills like responsibility and teamwork, and they receive nurturing that will help to change the rest of their lives.
You know we almost never ask our Facebook friends to share anything. We hope you make an exception for this. Many of you have huge FB circles. If you and all your friends vote daily for us, we have a good chance of receiving funding. Only the top 50 applicants move on to the final selection process. You can make us one of those 50!
Visit www.seedsofchangegrant.com or the Seeds of Change Facebook page, “LIKE” the page and vote for us! To find our application, search for “Hillcrest”. You can vote once per day until April 21. THANK YOU ALL!
