Gardening Project

The Boys and Girls Club of Eureka is planning to install a garden at the Harris Street location next spring and could use your support! The Garden Project is in its initial phase, and the scope and extent of the project depends partially on what kind of funds can be raised.

The most expensive year of the project will be year one, in which we hope to install a permanent and complete community-style garden for the kids to learn and grow with. We are looking for support, in the form of donations of all kinds.

Your monetary support would assist the process by providing for the larger elements of the garden that will have significant price tags, such as a greenhouse, shed and raised beds.

Or, if your business has any of the items on the wish list below and wanted to donate them to the effort, this kind of exchange is equally welcomed!

This garden project will be as good as our community makes it. Many hands make light work, and even small individual efforts add up to benefit the whole in ways greater than one of us alone!
