We recently shared Renee's Garden and Cornucopia seeds with Denise Pittman, from the Bellot Idovia Foundation. The Bellot Idovia Foundation is a local nonprofit that helps Haitian people gain access to clean water, grow their own food, and fosters work towards island reforestation and sustainability. http://www.bellotidovia.org/
We donated a container chock full of seed packets, (courtesy Botanical Interests), to Alexa. (San Lorenzo Unified School District). These seeds will be added to their seed library in the making.
Nourish Wellness is having our 3rd annual seed share. Not only do we donate seeds to school and community gardens, we give seeds to food banks as well. :)
Thank you to Renee's Garden Seeds, and Cornucopia, for helping to make this seed share possible.
Nourish Wellness redistributed seeds and plant starts at the 11th Annual Life is Living Festival today. Thank you to Renee's Garden Seeds for the donated seeds, and to Merritt Landscape Horticulture Department for the donated plant starts.
