|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 21, 2016Nearly 2,000 students planted their spring gardens last week as part of their participation in Granny’s Garden School.
Granny’s is asking for your support to ensure the program is still there when it is time for the spring harvest in May.
Loveland, OH – March 21, 2016
Granny’s Garden School is asking for your help. A variety of circumstances beyond its control put the organization in a temporary financial crisis. A local foundation has offered to match your donation. You can donate on line, or send a check to Granny’s Garden School, 20 Miamiview Drive, 45140. All donations are tax deductible. All donors will be invited to pick a spring floral bouquet from Granny’s extensive flower gardens May 7th, the day before Mother’s Day.
Granny’s is also recruiting board candidates and applicants to join a task force to help strengthen the organization financially. Toward that end, It is seeking professionals with expertise in social media, marketing, website development, fund development and strategic planning.
Granny’s Garden School was founded in 2002 by a grandmother with a vision to create teaching gardens at Loveland Primary School where her grandchildren were in the first and second grades. The program took off and today is one of the largest and most comprehensive programs of its kind in the country. The program is in four schools, three in Loveland and one (Stewart Elementary) in the Princeton School District.
Along the way, it was also the inspiration for a number of garden programs in this area, including The Rothenberg Roof Gardens in Over the Rhine and others throughout the region and across the country.
