Empowering Green Bay residents to grow food and be part of a sustainable urban agricultural system.
This year New Leaf Garden Blitz is once again participating in the $eedMoney Campaign with the goal of raising $4,000. $eedMoney is an organization that offers grants to garden-focused groups, by running a 30-day fundraiser challenge from November 15th to December 15th. The size of the $eedMoney grant depends on how much we raise ourselves. Please help us to reach our goal this year by clicking this link to make a donation.
As more families grow their own food, they are empowering themselves to slow down, connect to the earth, and nourish their loved ones.
To celebrate our 10th year in 2023 New Leaf Garden Blitz plans to build and install 80 more raised bed gardens throughout the community. We are dedicated to installing gardens for organizations that empower families of children in our most vulnerable populations.
