Join CommunityGrows in celebrating 20 years of cultivating healthy youth through growing gardens in low-income, diverse communities! On Wednesday, November 5, 2014, we’ll host our 1st Annual Harvest Dinner – an exclusive, intimate meal at one of San Francisco’s iconic restaurants, Greens at Fort Mason.
Our Harvest Dinner kicks off our fall fundraising efforts – this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a wonderful meal while showing your support of underserved San Francisco youth. Proceeds will fund our mission of helping high-need youth in the Western Addition acquire the necessary skills to live a healthy life through garden education, nutritious cooking and eating, and green jobs training.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about CommunityGrows, including our beautiful gardens located throughout San Francisco and our work with local youth. There will be presentations by Executive Director Barbara Wenger, Wendy Johnson, and graduates of CommunityGrows’ BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated & Employable Teens) program.
We will also be raffling off several gift certificates, wine baskets, and exclusive experiences, with details to be released soon. There is no need to be present to win, so if you are unable to attend, please consider purchasing a raffle ticket (or five!) through this site. A full list of items will be available shortly.
