2018 Donations That Made 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 non­profit organizations at the end of the season. We are pleased to share just a few successful outcomes.

GRuB (Garden Raised Bounty)
Olympia, Washington

With your support, our youths, community volunteers, and farm staff grew over 10,000 pounds of food for our community. It is our priority to distribute food to folks who are at risk for food insecurity. Your donation also supported our Victory Garden Project where over 50 raised bed gardens were built for low income families in 2018.

We are a one acre Native Plant garden. We are about 80% Title 1, and any extra seeds that we do not plant are given to students as a reward or payment for helping in the Garden, a successful project, etc. We also give them to families at our Environmental Festival. Thank you so much for your donation.

Thank you for your donation. We are a group of kids and adult volunteers learning about sustainable agriculture. Hands-on farm-based activities provide the produce for sale at farm stands. We use vegetables and herbs for cooking lessons, etc. Many club members actively participate in the Youth Urban Agriculture movement, as well as in the county and state-level competitions.

We assist Silicon Valley’s low-income residents in growing organic vegetables in their own yards.

Lower Columbia School Gardens
Longview, WA

The seeds you shared with our 18 School Gardens in Longview and Kelso may be small enough to fit in the palm of a child's hand, but the impact they have in our community is far-reaching and long-lasting as students and families are empowered to grow their own food. They learn what it looks like to love and care for other folks in their community and out in the wider world – in a real way – sharing fresh food, preparing meals with new friends, or just being themselves in the presence of their fellow humans. Your seeds help people connect with one another.
