So, I wanted to do a separate blog about our new campaign and what we are planning for this fall!
Introducing our new campaign......... "Beet Cancer in the Garden"! We are super excited about this project! Check out our logo, done by an amazingly talented artist and dear friend, Kimmie Carper:
to kick this campaign off, we planted 5 of our raised beds with some very healthy foods!!! bed 1: beets bed 2: kale bed 3: chard bed 4: carrots bed 5: arugula
our main educational focus will be on 2 superfoods, beets and kale.
We have met with Susan G. Komen about this project and they are very supportive. We are developing our relationship with them, and working on how we can work together to educate about the correlation of food and health to reduced risk of cancer, and for your health as you battle cancer. We have also worked with the green bottle candle company, and we will be selling candles made specifically for this campaign as a fundraiser! Proceeds will be divided between us and Susan G. Komen.
We also filed for our non-profit status, yesterday, actually, so we are very hopeful that this will come through soon, and we can start raising some money to help implement all of our fantastic ideas! =)
