Vote OGT to receive Follies proceeds!

Hello gardeners and lovers of accessible green space!

We are beyond stoked to announce that Our Green Thumb has been nominated as one of 5 organizations to potentially receive the proceeds from Follies ticket sales !!! Only the top two organizations will win, so – vote for us!

What could Our Green Thumb do with the money?

  • offer a stellar campus-wide workshop on the subject of your choice, potentially with take-home-ables (could be: potted-vegetable gardens, rainwater catchment, vermiculture (worms!), compost systems, municipal waste field trip – OR anything awesome you can think of)
  • purchase lumber to frame each plot, both beautifying the garden AND preventing water and nutrient run off from beds
  • purchase additional compost infrastructure (we currently process between 200-400 lbs of your food scraps each week!)
  • purchase more decorative plants for planter beds and street-scape facing Van Buren
  • purchase a more diverse seed collection for gardeners
  • purchase more tools (replace our broken wheel barrel; more trowels, etc)

Thanks for your support, supporting YOUR campus green space!
cheers!!
