Sponsoring a Project, you are contributing to leaving a lasting legacy in the communities served by City Green. Project sponsorship is an incredible way for you to support City Green’s Learning Farm and Learning Garden, which provide an urban oasis for all ages to gather and learn about urban farming and gardening, healthy nutrition, and the environment. Choose a project to sponsor from the list provided or contact City Green with your own project sponsorship idea.
If you are a corporation/business, turn your project sponsorship into a fun team-building volunteer day! Contact City Green to discuss a corporate volunteer day that will incorporate the building of the project your organization has chosen to sponsor for a guaranteed amazing day on the farm.
Sponsoring a Program gives you the opportunity to directly support City Green’s educational programming for inner city children and families. From field trips to summer garden camp, your gift will go a long way in helping City Green to introduce children to the wonder of nature, inspire life long connections with the natural environment, and create increased access to healthy farm-fresh food.
Your project or program sponsorship will proudly be recognized by City Green through the inclusion of a plaque with your name, corporation/business name or group name and the year it was sponsored displayed at the project location and with recognition on our website. Thank you for your support of City Green and our mission of “Growing Healthy Cities”!
