Buying the materials to build a half acre of raised beds for our garden, allowing us to continue with our CSA business.
The Raised Bed Project at Buttercup Farms Garden is a part of Buttercup Farms, a Clayton, California non-profit dedicated to helping people help themselves.
We have three goals at the garden:
- To establish a thriving organic garden that will be a model for environmentally sound food production and water usage
- To begin a Community Supported Agriculture business (CSA) for the sale of our produce.
- To use our garden to teach adults an children about nature, horticulture and where their food comes from.
We need donations for our raised-bed project. We have built a half-acre of raised beds at the garden and need to buy materials -primarily redwood 2 x12s -to build the last half-acre of beds. The raised beds have both a practical and an aesthetic purpose. They are an essential part of our CSA and vegetable production with their long-lasting redwood sides and wire mesh bottoms that give much-needed protection against gophers. But they also give a clean, organized look to the garden that is helpful in our mission to teach people in the community the value of organic food production in an aesthetically-pleasing environment.
Gary Crandall our head gardener and David Norris his helpful assistant will be working on this project.
Thank you so much for your interest in our garden and what we do!
