For a $10 donation, donors receive a Harvest Basket filled with fresh herbs and organic produce, locally grown in nearby school gardens.
Green Our Planet’s offices are located at The Innevation Center and their team is very active in the space’s collaborative community.
“The Innevation Center and Switch worked with Green Our Planet earlier in the year to sponsor a student garden,” said Chelsea Phillips, Director of Innevation at The Innevation Center. “Our team gathered at Robert E. Lake elementary school to help build the garden and we’ve stayed involved ever since. As we are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday, we thought this would be a great way to get the community involved while raising money to assist in the garden education program. And who doesn’t love fresh, locally grown produce?”
Phillips says The Innevation Center team believes that what Green Our Planet are doing for the community is incredibly important, especially their Outdoor Garden Classroom Program.
“The goal of the Outdoor Garden Classroom Program is to help public and private schools raise funds and build outdoor vegetable gardens where students can be taught a variety of subjects including STEM, health, and nutrition education,” she explained.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the garden program at Robert E. Lake elementary school which includes weekly garden education for students and teachers in addition to spring and fall cooking demonstrations by Green Our Planet’s chef partners.
