Kansas City Community Gardens announces the 16th annual “Adopt-A-Garden” campaign to help finance community gardens in the metro area. Anyone can help by contributing to Kansas City Community Gardens. You can choose the level of support, and all contributions are appreciated.
Your support will provide vegetable seeds, plants and fertilizer to enable low-income families to produce food from their garden plots. You’ll be helping to grow our mission, including the children’s garden!
$500 - Community Trellis
$250 - Vine
$100 - Seedling
$50 - Sprout
The Adopt-a-Garden program provides essential donor support for community, school, and home gardens throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area. Your gift helps to fund KCCG’s core mission and programs, including essential operating costs, and helps to purchase vegetable seeds, plants, and fertilizer to help low-income families and others in Kansas City grow their own healthy food. Your support also helps KCCG to teach youth groups and families visiting the Beanstalk Children’s Garden about healthy eating and urban gardening. Each contributor of $50 or more will receive background information and a photo of one of KCCG’s adopted gardeners.
Adopt-a-Garden contribution levels:
“Seed”- A gift of $25 can provide seeds for a low-income family living in a food desert to grow their own fresh vegetables.
“Sprout”- A donation of $50 can help start tomato, sweet potato, and pepper transplants in KCCG’s on-site greenhouse so a local community group or congregation can grow healthy food to donate for hunger relief in Kansas City.
“Seedling”-A gift of $100 will allow KCCG to till a community garden for one of our Community Partner Gardens, including neighborhoods and nonprofits like Hillcrest Transitional Living, Whatsoever Community Center, and Beacon Hills Community Garden
“Vine”- Your gift of $250 will help support KCCG’s free garden skills workshops program, reaching nearly 1,000 people in the community each year with workshops like “Vegetable Garden Basics” and “Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes”
