    Name our grease truck! Think of it like naming a boat—it’s not meant to be a corporate sponsorship or naming, but choose your favorite name—in homage of a person, a pet, or whoever else you’d like, and we’ll put it across the front. We reserve the right to reject any name that might be profane or have negative consequences for us. The grease truck (which we’re shopping for now, and won’t be brand new and shiny) will join the family of Growing Hope vehicles, including Clifford the Truck Farm and Rosie the F-150. We’ll also do a professional photo session of you or someone you choose with the truck.

    If you’re within 50 miles of Growing Hope, we’ll lead the building for your school, community, congregation, or workplace a garden! If it’s a garden in a communal setting, we hope others will get involved in the building, too, but we’ll bring as much labor as is needed. We’ll build the garden using 4x4 foot 8 inch tall untreated wood raised beds-- we’ll provide the beds (up to 20 4x4 beds, or up to 10 4x8 beds), compost/soil to fill them, and woodchips for pathways. Fences or more are up to you. And, to help your project succed, we’ll also provide up to 8 hours of consultation—whether helping with curricula integration at a school, or providing garden education, or training your team how to manage a community garden—we’ll customize for you.
