WE DID IT! Now for a stretch.
There's no amount of thank-yous to reach the depth of my gratitude to all of you--we're past our goal with a week left to go. Thank you, thank you, thank you all.
Now that we've met the initial goal, let's try for a stretch goal: if we reach $750, we can cover the cost of adding a rain barrel on-site to water the garden over the summer. That's a help to our long-term costs, too, as it's a lot less water we'll have to haul in (remember, no building infrastructure!).
So keep spreading the word, and let's hit $750 before Saturday!
Also, check out the peas... they start out looking not at all like peas, and then after three days in water: oh hey peas! Can't wait to plant 'em.

Name a ladybug! We'll be releasing ladybugs on the day of the Plant'N'Picnic, and we'll read out the name(s) you've selected before we wish the ladybugs well on their way. We'll also post the list of ladybug names on our website. They can be cute, funny, silly, whatever, so long as they're PG (ok maybe PG-13. But nothing obscene; you get the idea).Estimated delivery:

We *could* just call it 'the first garden'… but why, when you can name it something better? We'll put up a sign so that everyone who comes to our summer events will see your awesomely chosen name where the green growing things are. Same rules apply for the garden name as for ladybug names.Estimated delivery:
