Renee's Garden Seed Donations Make A Difference

Every year, Renee's Garden donates seeds to a wide variety of organizations and educational programs worldwide that strive to improve social, economic and health conditions, and promote sustainable organic gardening. We also encourage retailers to donate unsold Renee's Garden seeds to local non-profit organizations at the end of the season. We are pleased to share their successful outcomes.


 
Health, Wellness and Environmental Studies School,
Jonesboro, Arkansas

The HWES School is in Northeast Arkansas where the land is flat and the primary farming is rice and soy beans. It is in an area that is relatively poor and rural with about 70% of the students coming from low income families. Starting with three Bermuda grass infested courtyards and an abandoned former cafeteria, they now have a greenhouse, three outdoor classrooms with over 20 raised beds, an outdoor kitchen area and a classroom sized kitchen.

Seeds For Peace International, Saratoga Springs, NY
"We have many individuals and groups we send seeds to - some are here in the US and many are in Africa. Most of our African recipients are AIDS orphans. I will be sending a box to Lesotho soon - it is a tiny country within S. Africa are dealing with drought and food shortages. Our guidelines for people receiving seeds include war, disease, ethnic strife, natural disasters and poverty."

Food, What?, Santa Cruz, CA

"Food, What?" partners with teenage youth to grow, cook, eat and distribute healthy sustainably raised food. This serves to empower youth to realize their full potential, to enjoy life, and serve as grounds for hard skill and leadership development.  Here are some photos of the "Food,What?" crew planting Renee's seeds this season. We grow food for 24 low income families each year, as well as cook and eat the veggies with the teens in the program."
