We are raising funds for 2 reasons:
- to help distribute our newly created How-To Guide to enable other individuals, groups and organizations create a donation garden and organization to get fresh food to people in need. CLICK THIS LINK to check out the guide. We hope to distribute this guide to across the region and across the US. During this time helping to get more food to more people is critical!
- to help our organization be able to continue to do our great work. This year has been a difficult year - and we've had to change how we operate to be as effective as possible. Help us continue to grow our organization so we can contribute as much fresh, healthy food to people in need across Westchester!
Last year was very successful for the Pleasantville Community Garden. We had a lot of support from the community, the Pleasantville Farmers Market, the Eastern FC Foundation and many more. Our total donation of fresh produce for 2019 was over 17,000 pounds. Thank you to everyone who helped!
There are many opportunities for volunteering for the Pleasantville Community Garden. People of all ages are able to take part.
