This year the Gardens is trying something new: we’ve put together a calendar with photo submissions from your fellow gardeners, and we’re selling it! All the money will go directly to the Gardens’ general fund, enabling us to do things like:
- Offer more scholarships to low-income gardeners;
- Provide community plots for free to local groups; and
- Replace broken tools.
The calendar contains gardening tips, important gardening-related dates, and is of course a great way to both show and share your love of the Gardens, and gardening!
The professionally printed calendars are 11″ wide x 17″ tall (when hanging), full color, and are available for purchase ($15 each) at the following stores: Home Green Home on the Commons, IthacaMade in Dewitt Mall, Agway at Fulton, and Sunny Days on the corner of Green and Cayuga Streets. You can also pick up calendars directly from Project Growing Hope for a minimum $15 donation; please see this list (https://goo.gl/GwwhnU) for the most convenient location to pick up your calendar(s) and purchase or make the donation.
