With a Little Help from our Friends

This Earth Day (Tuesday April 22nd) the Whole Foods at 3640 N Halsted will donate 5% of their proceeds to Ginkgo Organic Gardens.

For 20 years Ginkgo has been out-growing hunger by donating our harvests to local hunger fighting organizations.  In recent years we have donated 1,000 – 1,500 pounds of produce annually to Vital Bridges GroceryLand, a food pantry that serves low-income persons living with HIV.  Donations secured through Whole Foods’ 5% Day on Tuesday, April 22nd, will go to help improve the garden through major infrastructure improvements.

Browse through the photos on the blog, so you can visualize the amazing work that you're doing simply by buying escarole, local brews, or bulk peanuts.  Share this post and spread the word like homemade peanut butter! (It's been a big peanut week at my place).

Also, if you just can't wait until Earth Day to start do-gooding for Mother Earth, drop by Ginkgo on Saturday for some beautiful weather and first of the year direct seeding!
