While this year has been tough on all of us, it’s important to shed light on some amazing moments we’ve had in the past few months! We would first like to thank all of our customers for their patience during this time. We are currently catching up on orders after a short shutdown in March--thanks to you, we have sold over 6,000 Garden Towers and counting since the start of the year! Here are some other awesome things we’ve been up to.
Earlier this year, we teamed up with the Tri Kappa Philanthropic Organization to donate a dozen garden towers and other materials to the Bloomington Housing Authority communities to combat food insecurity. To further support the project's success, we donated labor, soil, and additional products!
Since April, we have donated over 5,000 face covering frames with elastic to groups all over the country that requested them. Some were distributed within the Bloomington Community and others were sent in bulk to two schools in Arizona and a New York program for farm workers.
We still have these available for donation and purchase--with that said, people are still using them all over the country. We have shipped over 65,000 out to folks!
Right before the start of 2020, the Garden Tower was featured in The Need to Grow, a documentary following innovators of low and high tech solutions to help localize food and regenerate our planet's dying soils.
We are so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to us this past year and we know that it wouldn’t be possible without our friends, family, and customers that passionately support the Garden Tower Project!
