Three Days Left to Fund Children’s Magical Garden Program

Must Read

As you may know, the volunteers at the Children’s Magical Garden have been fighting an uphill legal battle for full control of their Stanton Street space. But at the same time, the group is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to set up a free organic gardening program.  Here’s part of the appeal:

One afternoon, childhood friends Feng and Amina stepped out of their Lower East Side school, located in one of the most densely built cities in the world.   By luck and courage they walked into a green oasis across the street, Children’s Magical Garden, where they were welcomed with open arms.  There they found breathing space. Grownups mentored them as they planted fruit trees and grew vegetables. They learned about nature, making a difference, and eventually got into prestigious New York State colleges. Now young adults, Feng, Amina and other youth want to give back what they’ve learned, inspiring the next generation of our community’s children. Your funding will support opening the gates to hundreds of more youth for years to come.  Feng, Amina and their mentors will be teaching them about chickens, community compost, abundant fruit trees, herbal medicine, berry bushes and much much more.

Lots of prizes are available for donors, including dinner for two at Tiny’s Giant Sandwich Shop (TLD readers’ choice winner for best sandwich on the LES).  There are only three days to go and the garden needs around $5000 to meet an initial goal.  You can find out more here and watch a video about the Children’s Magical Garden below.
