There are two great ways this week to dine and drink to support our work. Stop by Mitchell Delicatessen on Wednesday, April 28; all day they will be donating 20% of their sales to support our work of garden education throughout Nashville. Celebrate this pretty weather on the patio of the Ranch at Jackalope Brewery’s taproom until the end of the month. They are donating 20% of all sales of their Thunder Ann beer.
“The Predators Foundation loves to support great organizations like Plant the Seed through our annual grant program and staff volunteer opportunities. Most recently, our employees had a blast helping build the herb garden during our NHL Green Month celebrations, and we look forward to continuing our work together in the future!”
Taylor Klein, Community Relations Coordinator, Nashville Predators Foundation
Big thanks to the Nashville Predators Foundation! We were presented with a $2000 grant, and their team helped install culinary herb beds at Rosebank STEAM Elementary. Those beds will provide herbs for students and families. We also received complimentary tickets to last Monday’s Preds game, which proved to be a fun night for our team and supporters. We are truly grateful for this partnership and support. (photo below)
We are so grateful to the Turnip Truck Natural Market and their customers at all three locations. During the first two weeks in April, customers could round up their total at check-out to donate to Plant the Seed. They collectively raised just over $4400 to support our work. We had fun tabling, meeting their fantastic customers and certainly appreciate this partnership.
Plant the Seed inspires and empowers young people to effect meaningful change in their lives through hands-on learning. Traditionally this has happened in school and community gardens. In 2020 it’s happening virtually, and not only are we making it work, we’re thriving.
Plant the Seed currently serves five schools and up to 1,000 students through take-home kits and video lessons.
Spring is a magical time in the garden, and we are so grateful to be back in the garden with our students. THANK YOU to all our followers and those who donate to keep us growing!
