Stewardship Teams

Some volunteers like to come back and continue tending to projects and sites over time. We appreciate the steady support and are forming Stewardship Teams to facilitate this. If you are interested in joining one of our Stewardship Teams, such as for the Rahma Forest Garden project, please contact us at info [at] sharing your interest and we will bring you into the loop!


The funding for our garden, urban agriculture, and Permaculture projects comes primarily from grant funds which we write as volunteers.  We also get some in-kind donations of plants and other material goods during the year.  But the hardest thing to raise money for is overhead expenses.

We are looking for 50 donors to each give $12 (that’s only $1 per month), which would result in $600.  This will cover our basic overhead of our liability insurance and our web hosting needs.  If each of you who have participated with us and, we hope, benefited through knowledge learning, receiving food or planting materials, getting hands-on experience, tasting new foods, exposing someone else to the permaculture and foods movement, or if you just appreciate the work we do, please donate today.

To donate, please pledge $1 For Permaculture through our campaign on the secure donation service Patreon, or you can make one-time contributions using our secure Network for Good payment portal.
