Fundraising – GoFundMe

Fundraising – GoFundMe

Yesterday we shared that we have enough funds to proceed with phase 1 of the garden build. With that in mind we are fundraising for phase 2 – building a fence around the garden to keep critters out.

]To kick this off, we’ve started a GoFundMe campaign if you want to donate directly to the garden project. You can contribute at: Lynnwood Ogden Community Garden The funds will be directed to MOCA who is overseeing the finances for the project and they will be used for the construction of the garden.

Thanks again for all your support!

Construction update

Construction update

We’ve received enough funding to begin construction on the community garden, but this will only cover the bare essentials (aka, phase 1). We have applied for many grants and since we don’t know when or if they will be approved, we’ve divided the build into four phases so that we can use the money as it comes in. We will progress through each phase once we receive enough funding to do so.  Here is what is included in each phase:

Phase 1 – Build raised garden boxes, fill with soil, landscape pathways

Phase 2 – Install fence

Phase 3 – Build shed, compost bin, entrance arbor and purchase picnic tables

Phase 4 – Purchase and install gazebo

We are planning to do the building for phase 1 on the weekend of May 14 & 15 and will need volunteers to help with construction. We plan to create a way for volunteers to sign up and we will let you know when that is available. Thanks everyone for your continued interest in this project!

As the community garden progresses towards our build date, we are ready to begin taking reservations for garden boxes for this season. If you’re interested in reserving a garden box, please follow the blue link below to get your name on the list. We are not taking payments yet but I’ve included pricing below as general information.

  • 8′ x 4′ boxes are $45 per season
  • 4′ x 4′ boxes are $22.50 per season

Since the garden will be run as a sub-committee of MOCA, we are operating as a non profit and all rental fees will go into maintaining the garden. We are also dialoging with MOCA to see if a community association membership will be required to rent a bed.
