Donations to Ardmore Gateway Garden made via the SeedMoney website through December 15 are eligible for a $400 grant. The first 75 groups to reach $400 in donations through SeedMoney will receive a $400 match.
Ardmore Gateway Garden is located at 426 Hawthorne Road in Winston-Salem, directly across from the Ronald McDonald House. The property was leased to Sustainable+Ardmore, a local nonprofit organization, by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Volunteers with the organization have spent the last two months developing the site for the community garden. The space will also be used to provide educational programs related to sustainable practices for gardening, home and neighborhoods as well as individual wellness.
Donations to Ardmore Gateway Garden though SeedMoney will go toward adding wheelchair accessible beds to the garden, creating trellises to make the most efficient use of garden space, adding compost bins, and providing funds to repair and maintain garden tools.
Thanks to community support, the Ardmore Gateway Garden has come a long way since the first garden beds were established in 2013. Donations made today will help provide food to those in need in our community, as well as provide garden space for community members to grow fresh produce. Existing beds are used by families, who are teaching their children about where food comes from, seniors who get exercise while growing food for healthy meals, and those who do not have access to garden space where they reside.
Community support is greatly appreciated as work continues to ensure that the Ardmore Gateway Garden remains a tranquil, productive community space for years to come.
