It’s January. The snow is piling up outside, the sidewalks are treacherous and the temperature each night is below freezing. But Spring Ahead…you take a deep breath and your lungs are filled with warm, humid air. The earthy smell of growing plants and moistened soil envelops you and takes you to the comfort and beauty of summer.
It’s not just in your imagination! Right downtown in Centennial Park the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership park, heated with our local geothermal energy, is being built. And with your help and generous donation, the first greenhouse can become a reality this spring. The Education Greenhouse, the first of three to be built, will provide public programs in growing local foods year-round. In the near future, two additional greenhouses are planned; one a community garden and the third the Innovation Greenhouse to showcase modern greenhouse technology.
So as the days get longer, help us Spring Ahead with our capital campaign to build the Education Greenhouse. Help us meet our fundraising goal of $25,000 by March 12, the day we change our clocks and Spring Ahead. Give generously and let’s build a place where people can come together, learn to grow healthy food and be inspired.
