Passing along an update on our community planting efforts in Metuchen today for those of you tracking this story closely...
· Fundraising: We have raised close to $1,000 for plants and materials. Woo hoo! We honestly cannot thank everyone enough for their generosity and support. Folks have donated, called and stopped by with advice, lent shovels and rakes, etc. That said, budgetary increases can still be made at: http://bwpurpose.org/community/donate-help-beautify-metuchen/ or email if you still intend to give and would like to afford us more options during the many anticipated trips to Boro Hardware and local nurseries.
· Start Time of 10AM: If anyone was planning on stopping by as part of the planting, we moved up the start time to 10AM to try and beat the heat.
What's Next...The Farmers' Market This Saturday: We will have a table this Saturday at the Metuchen Farmers' Market where we will share more about the work that we do, background on the Metuchen community planting effort and our upcoming 10th anniversary celebration events. We hope you'll take advantage of the market, and stop by our table to hear more about our work.
