We are so grateful for our grant from TPP. It has helped us with ongoing fundraising, and to have so much support when we really didn’t know what we were doing when first applying for grants really helped us to take our next steps . . . [it] allowed us to build our first secured raised beds, fill the beds with organic garden soil and plant additional apple and pear trees.
Because we were able to do this work, people in the community are noticing the garden and more volunteers joined the project. It has also been instrumental in our fundraising as we can now post photos to our social media page which has inspired more financial giving to the project.
