First Harvest Campaign
Help make the garden a long-term resource for the community! This
October, Green Florida launches the First Harvest Campaign with the
goal of raising $40,000 to purchase the garden property at 1443
Highland Street South.
Why make a gift to
support the purchase of the garden?
- The garden serves many important purposes, from beautifying the
neighborhood, to providing affordable healthy food, to educating young
- Once this campaign is successful and we hold the title to the
land, the garden can be maintained with only minimal expenses in the
- Community gardens around the country are routinely lost or faced
with much larger fund-raising challenges when they don't deal early on
with acquiring their land. There are numerous examples of this. We
want our garden to be there for the long-haul.
Make a gift today through our secure donation link on the right. A
contribution of $100 or $500 makes you a Lifetime Member of the Garden.
We'll be reaching out to our neighbors through letters, phone calls,
house parties and fun events at the garden itself. Please join in! Call Andrea Hildebran at 727-643-7189 to help out.
We are asking St Petersburg City Council to change its zoning laws so that community gardens can be established in residential neighborhoods. Community gardens foster neighborhood pride, promote connections across generations, teach young people about the environment and help people access fresh, healthy food.
