Green Power Garden


Dear Friends,

We are the Green Power Garden, and would like to welcome you to a new growing season. If you are unfamiliar with us, we are a non-profit volunteer garden, started with the premise of teaching children about their food and gardening.  A bonus of this service is the produce itself which is donated to the Hope Center of Waukesha.  Last summer, with the help of hundreds of volunteers, water donations, and about four acres of plants, we provided more than 3000 pounds of produce to the Hope Center and affiliated organizations. Since this garden started in 2010, we have donated over 25000 pounds of food.  Some is cooked with, and some is given out for the meal recipients to take with them to cook snack on later.

Your church is listed as a contributing member to the Hope Center. And we are looking to add to our volunteer base.  We would like to give your congregation the opportunity to share in our garden mission.  Groups can fill in a date on our calendar any time after May 15th. The garden season is from the beginning of May to the end of October.  There are opportunities throughout the growing season planting, weeding, watering and harvesting. Everyone is welcome.  

Please share this information by forwarding this message to your youth minister, post in your bulletin, on your website, and share with others in your congregation. “Like” us on Facebook (Green Power Garden). Our Google calendar (located in the “about” section of our Facebook page) is available to help you plan a service opportunity. We can accommodate your volunteer groups of any size and will work with you. We also have scheduled work hours weekly to accommodate last minute groups or volunteers. The garden is located in the Town of Waukesha at the corner of Lawnsdale Road and Milky Way Roads. (See attached map).

Be the Hope


THE NEED:

All of our programs are based on the needs that are recognized in our communities. We believe that helping people with their basic needs is essential for them to have dignity and respect in their lives. Hope Center has helped thousands of people over the years.

 

WHAT ELSE:

In all of our programs, Hope Center reaches out in a caring manner, always trying to help people help themselves; hopefully empowering them to have the best possible quality of life given their limitations. We recognize the dignity of each individual no matter what his or her personal circumstance may be and we always strive to bring HOPE to those living in despair.

 

Hope Center runs on donations, grants, and through the volunteer efforts of caring people in our community.
