The expense of planting and caring for garden plots can be a major challenge for low-income individuals seeking to grow their own food. Community CROPS provides scholarships to help cover the expenses of garden plots, plants, seeds, tools, and water, plus gardening classes. Due to the large number of scholarships requested, the organization is seeking community support to help it continue to sponsor these gardeners.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Community CROPS can cover the costs of watering 50 community garden plots for an entire season. Each additional donation will fund the purchase of seeds ($5 for 100 packets; $10 for 200), to plant produce, including cucumbers, corn, beans, radishes, lettuce, herbs, and okra.
To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.
The Community CROPS (Combining Resources, Opportunities, and People for Sustainability) gardens program strives to strengthen Lincoln communities by providing spaces for residents to grow nutritious, fresh produce, as well as beautify the city with community gardens. In 2011, the gardening program produced more than 25,000 pounds of food, with 488 plots and 637 gardeners. As a community-building effort, Community CROPS never turns away interested gardeners, and it provided 300 of last year's gardeners with financial assistance for their plots.
CROPS volunteers and AmeriCorps members prep the gardens for the season, mulching garden paths with wood chips, adding composted manure to the plots, and taking inventory of tools and hoses at each garden. The staff also organizes organic growing and gardening classes for the community.
