Giving Day 2018: Support the Friends of the Farm & Garden on February 28

February 20, 2018

Your Giving Day gift on February 28 supports the work of the Friends of the UCSC Farm & Garden.

During the February 28th Giving Day event, support the dirt. The real dirt.

The Friends of the UCSC Farm & Garden have been getting their hands dirty for decades. For more than 50 years we have been building sustainable agricultural and food systems that make positive environmental impacts, contribute to a thriving local economy, and are founded in socially just systems.

During the one-day Giving Day event, you can support the Friends of the Farm & Garden with your gift.

When you support the Friends, you provide…

  • Scholarships to the Apprenticeship in Ecological Horticulture
  • Undergraduate research and training in agroecology & sustainable food systems
  • Improvements to the Farm & Garden structures, equipment, and facilities
  • Seeds and tools for use at the Farm & Garden
  • Public workshops, lectures, plant sales, and celebrations

And you...

  • Teach people how to grow food and flowers
  • Bring social issues into conversations about food and farming
  • Provide vibrant, hands-on educational opportunities on the UCSC campus
  • Foster sustainability and justice in agriculture around the world
