Hudson Valley Seed is seeking contributions to add an additional nine classes to its weekly garden education program this spring. This matching grant opportunity will also help with materials for projects such as new raised beds at Sargent Elementary School.
Hudson Valley Seed’s mission is to instill our children with an appreciation and knowledge of the land. At the same time, they learn about nutrition and the importance of using local food in our community. Perhaps the best part is that a good deal of this learning takes place outdoors.
Between now and April 18th, a contribution to Hudson Valley Seed will be matched dollar for dollar. If HVS reaches its $5,000 goal, those extra nine classes are a done deal.
April 18th is the last day for matching funds, so show your support for garden education today!
As part of United Way’s National Volunteer Week, you can also sign up to volunteer for Hudson Valley Seed’s garden work day on April 22nd.
