It is with incredible excitement that I share the Garden Plant Sale Fundraiser from this past weekend. We raised $4,200!!! Thank you to all the customers, our volunteer growers, business donors, and silent auction item (Edison Dad’s club) who made our first year's fundraiser such a success.
Here are some impressive stats:
450 plants and flowers were germinated by Edison students and parents
70 Tomato plants were donated from Alameda Backyard Growers
85 House Plants + Succulent cuttings were donated from Habitat Horticulture
18’ long worth of succulents was propagated by Edison parents and mystery donor from the community.
17 Oak Trees were donated by a mystery Edison parent and now the trees have found new grounds in St. Helena to help replace oak trees lost to wildfires in Sonoma County.
A total of 40 plants, flowers, house plants, and succulents were given to our Edison teachers and staff this week. We appreciate you!!!
25+ plants went back into our garden this week. Look forward to harvesting tomatoes, carrots, zucchinis, butternut squash, Chinese kale, basil, strawberry, lettuce, chrysanthemum, beans and rainbow chard this summer.
The remaining 100+ plants, seeds, and succulents will be donated to Otis School for their plant sale this weekend. May 7-8 From 9a-1p. Located at 3107 Filmore St (across from Otis).
The funds we raised will go towards supporting garden education and maintenance activities, such as:
Edison entrance beautification project
Inner courtyard vegetable beds repair
Monthly garden maintenance
Lunch recess projects
New irrigation system
Seeds & plants
Special thanks to the following volunteers, growers, and donors for all your help to make this sale so successful.
