The Good Giving Challenge is upon us. Here’s what’s happening Tuesday, November 27th through Monday, December 3rd.
We’re raising money to build an educational pavilion up at our Urban Farm space (also called North Farm) on North Limestone. Designed to be a place for folks to gather for education, work, food, fun and community building, the pavilion will further our goals of providing space for neighbors to grow fresh and healthy food, while providing them with skills training, educational opportunities and tools.
Because of a generous grant from Ky Colonels, we only need about $16,000 more to reach out goal.
Please, make plans now to give during 2018’s Good Giving Challenge week, so when the ground is ready for planting come springtime, our educational pavilion will be ready, too.
You can learn more and schedule a gift here.
Seedleaf needs your help. All neighbors and volunteers of any skill level are welcome to join us in the gardens each week. Email email@example.com to learn more, or to let us know that you want to bring a group of 8 or more. Thanks!
This is going to be fun. We hope you’ll join us for this potluck picnic. On the Move Art Studio will be on hand with a fun activity for young people. We will also offer a seed saving activity, and an informal Compost 101. All are welcome—no cost to join!
Join us to learn more about how to compost when you don't have a lot of room. Bokashi composition is a small scale composting method that uses lactobacillus bacteria to aid in the process. With Bokashi, it is possible to compost fruit and veggie scraps as well as meat, dairy and oils. At the workshop we will learn how the process works, what is needed to have a healthy Bokashi system, how to set up your system at home and even get to make some Bokashi starter to take home.
Space is limited, so RSVP to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Audit this one for free, or take home a starter kit for $35.
Join us for an interactive discussion on everything you've always wanted to know about Seedleaf. Hear the history, current programming, and future aspirations of our organization. We have lots of opportunities for volunteers to join in our work, so come learn how! There is no cost to participate in this one. RSVP to email@example.com so we'll know how many snacks to bring. (This volunteer training will precede a Bokashi Workshop at the same location.)
We are inviting community members, volunteers, neighbors, and fans of Seedleaf, to help direct our efforts in the coming growing season and beyond during this feedback session.
Participants will share and explore ideas and actions that will help Seedleaf better meet our mission of nourishing communities through growing and sharing food. The event will also focus on how Seedleaf can better represent and work with communities of color living in the North End.
The event will take place in the Deweese Street Community Room at the Lyric Theatre (300 N. Third Street). Snacks and light refreshments will be provided. There is no cost to participate, just RSVP to let us know you are coming.
For more information, please connect with us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring the whole family for this free pop-in event - there will be lots of fun, kid-friendly art activities, including a row marker design station; stenciling for garden buckets; a seed tape station; and a chance to create mushroom kits. ARTplay Children's Studio will be here as well, from 2-3p, painting wood signs and markers for gardens and community gardens around Lexington.
If you’d like to put together a worm bin ($15) or a mushroom kit ($35), please RSVP with Ryan Koch at email@example.com.
Seedleaf and the Tweens Coalition team up to share some serious small plates at Rock House Brewing. Support two great organizations for a family-friendly fun night out! Sponsored by Casa Blanca Mexican Restaurant. Recommended donation at the door is $10. Learn more here.
