While this important work was taking place, you also helped us have fun doing it, joining in on our bug-eating challenge both remotely and at a variety of community events and donation stations. Everyone who liked and commented on all of our facebook videos helped bring in:

Please give what you can to put children on the path to success, with engaging, hands-on, outdoor education. Give today, tomorrow and the other 363 days of the year. See you in the learning garden!
