Help us grow our program
BUTTERFLY POLLINATOR GARDEN | $300
Help us install and maintain a butterfly pollinator garden at one of our partner schools by investing in Lettuce Learn at the $300 giving level. Using designs appropriate for our unique region, we will invite beneficial insects by installing a beautifully designed flower garden consisting of plants such as bee balm, milkweed, and cone flower
Your name, company name or logo will be included on our sponsorship page and through social media outlets.
HIGH COUNTRY GROWN FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS | $600
Invest in young entrepreneurs and philanthropists by joining in our partnership with High Country Local First, the Hunger and Health Coalition and Blue Ridge CRAFT as we teach the future generation the economic viability in growing good, fresh, REAL food. Produce harvested from our school gardens will be donated to those in need, sold to High Country Local First Restaurants, and marketed at school-based young entrepreneurial produce markets.
SUPPORT A GARDEN SMART EDUCATOR | $1000
Support a garden-based training that prepares teachers to teach Science, Math, Art, Reading, Writing, Responsibility, and Teamwork in an outdoor garden setting. Professional development trainings are one of the best ways to give teachers the tools they need to utilize school gardens in the most effective way. If used to their potential, school gardens have been shown to improve academic, nutrition, and attitude outcomes based on numerous research studies. (view past trainings and garden SMART events here)
In addition to the other rewards, you will be recognized on the website, posters, and flyers for each of the four Farm to School Professional development workshops.
The success of a school garden depends on a dedicated champion to plan, manage and care for the garden during the school year and over summer break. We believe in providing a "LettuceLove" stipend to the garden champion to ensure their dedication is partially compensated. Read about our current garden coordinator champions.
