Fifty percent of Pelion Garden is edible! Throughout the year we use fresh fruits and vegetables to teach lessons in nutrition, agriculture, sustainability, and cooking. Additionally, we employ a variety of growing methods to demonstrate how easily schools, residents and commercial sites might incorporate more eco-friendly practices into their green spaces.
At the start of each growing season, we must replenish supplies such as seeds, seedlings, compost, plant supports, tools, equipment, and educational signage. Management of these areas also requires 10-15 hours a week for planting, watering, weeding, repairs and training. Your sponsorship enables the garden to thrive, ensuring a vibrant outdoor classroom for our students and community members. Sponsors will receive acknowledgment and regular photo updates on social media, a small sign in the zone featuring the sponsor’s logo or name, and a commemorative certificate to display at your business. Sponsorships are $100.
