A huge Bounty thank you to all of our day-of volunteers who were an imperative piece to all of our successes at the 2016 Plant Sale! Thank you for your time on Sunday, and for representing Petaluma Bounty to the wider community!
For this event we define success as raising funds for our programs in a manner that encourages more gardening in the community, providing equitable access to plants and food (through our CalFresh match incentive), relationship building and community engagement/memory-making at the Bounty Farm. We sold or re-homed approximately 1,500 plants; brought on several hundred visitors to the farm; and will donate the remaining plants to local school and community gardens!
Kudos to Farmer Taylor and team for having great variety and thousands of healthy, hardy plants! Katie H. did a great job coordinating volunteers day of, and our amazing Advisory Board for recruiting volunteers, making food for the volunteers and being the wind in our sails!
