Exciting news! We have just gotten a paypal account set up for donations….the awesome DC environmental justice non-profit Groundwork Anacostia (groundworkdc.org) is generously acting as a fiscal agent for us, so that we can have a 501(c)3 status. Thanks to them, your donations are tax-deductible!
We are currently in the process of raising funds and collecting supplies to build the community garden, scheduled to break ground on March 18th. Anything that you can give is greatly appreciated!
Furthermore, if you or anyone you know would like to donate building or gardening tools, lumber (rot resistant is best!), soil, or compost, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly come pick it up.
This space has some amazing potential, and the more resources, people, and ideas that come together, the greater it can be!!
