Fundraising Success! – Growing Gardens for Life.

Thanks to everyone from ABC Chapel and the community of Armstrong, BC for the amazing donations and turn out for our first ever Garage Sale!

$2200.00 was raised through the garage sale which included hotdogs, baked goods and 24 tables of items donated by people from the community.

100% of the proceeds – the full $2200.00 – is to be donated to the Growing Gardens for Life initiative.

The money will be used to purchase greenhouses, garden sheds and various implements to be used by the supported orphanages in Tecate, Mexico.

Education is a central element to Growing Gardens for Life

Growing Gardens for Life is a program dedicated to teaching children in Tecate Children’s Homes sustainable gardening as a means to support themselves and their community when they age out of the orphanages.
