In 2012 we engaged more than 1200 volunteers who contributed more than 5000hrs or service, sowing seeds, weeding the fields, and harvesting produce.
Guided by our youth leaders, and our Urban Farm Corps these volunteers helped us grow almost 15,000 pounds of produce that was sold to our 70 Member CSA, to 300 neighbors a week, and to our local restaurant partners.
With volunteer support we also established ourselves as the city’s largest Community Composting Initiative. In fact, we processed more than 160 tons of food and farm waste by hand, helping to improve productivity, reduce costs, and lay the foundation for a new source of revenue.
Please consider making a tax deductible year end contribution to Added Value ensure that we can work continue to engage people like you, in meaningful service learning activities.
A contribution of:
$50 will cover the costs of seeds for our educational gardens
$150 will support the rebuilding of worm bins through which the children learn so much
$300 would sponsor a three hour experience for one classroom of local students
$500 will support the purchase of a new camera that will help us document the learning taking place in the field.
$1500 would purchase all the educational signage needed for the gardens for 2012.
Ian and the whole Added Value team.
