Original Post:

In preparation to join The Garden Project staff after my AmeriCorps term is complete in August, I am excited to have the opportunity to attend a School Garden Coordinator Certificate Training in Portland, Oregon this summer.

The certification covers topics from the historic context of school gardens to program evaluations. This training will give me the tools and resources necessary to cultivate successful school garden programs throughout La Plata County. This year I focused on Needham Elementary School and in the coming school year I hope to expand our garden programs more effectively at Riverview Elementary, Park Elementary and Miller Middle School.

To be able to attend, I need to raise the registration fee and travel costs:
Registration fee: $450
Travel: $530 (Flying from Durango to Portland, economy seat)
Lodging/food: $125 (Free lodging with friends and $25/day budgeted for lunch and dinner x 5 days)
Total: $1,105

Would you consider making a donation today? The training starts on June 20th and I need to raise the full amount by June 16th in order to attend.

If 74 people make a $15 donation then I would have enough funds to go! Please support me by making a donation. Thank you so much!

Thank you for supporting my personal and professional growth, in doing so you are increasing the impact of our programs in our community.
