We received a most generous donation from one of our traveling Field Superintendents employees, Sam Hagen. Sam had emailed and said that he checks the Teaching Giving Garden blog often, and wished he could do something to help. He asked if there was anything we needed. I told him that we could really used some garden gloves for our volunteers.
Today, a gift card for Menards arrived at our office. Not only were we able to purchase the gloves for our volunteers, but we were also able to purchase some much needed garden stakes just in time for our planting day!!
Sam, thank you so very much for your support of this garden. We are very grateful!
