What’s New with Backyard Growers

Looking for a way to support Backyard Growers this winter?

Join us on March 3rd as we partner with Treetop Yoga for a Karma class!

Yogi Veggies

Treetop’s Emma Delphin will lead the class and provide the bartending skills. Emma offers an energizing, lighthearted 1 hour flow and after we will celebrate our community with a fun post savasana cocktail!

Minimum donation of $10 includes the class and the cocktail – all money raised will go to Backyard Growers.

If you find more zen in the garden then on the mat, consider supporting our Give-A-Garden, Get-A-Garden Program.

G4 2018

The Get-a-Garden, Give-a-Garden is a program for those who are not income eligible for the Backyard Garden Program. When you participate in the Get-a-Garden, Give-a-Garden program, not only do you get a garden, but you make it possible for a low-income Gloucester family to have a garden just like yours!  When you make a contribution of $600, we use half of it to build a garden for you, and the other half to build a garden for a low-income Gloucester family. $300 of your contribution is tax deductible.
