Luffas With a Cause
Help us to bring more garden joy to our schools!
Together We Grow has been so blessed to see our gardens expanding into our schools, but we're not even close to being done! Our dream is to have a learning garden in every Newark City School. With your help, we could get there! Just $600 would help us to install a brand new learning garden at a new school. If you want to help us spread the joy of gardening throughout Newark City Schools, then click the donate button below!
Turns out those luffa sponges you buy at the store are actually plants! The Elementary students in Newark City Schools are helping our cause by starting our luffas in their classrooms. These luffas will be replanted at our 6th street garden on beautiful trellises. After the Luffa’s have dried out in the fall we make fun and luxurious soaps with the participants of our Here We Grow Gardens Program. Our soaps are sold at all of our fundraising events for $5 each. Then the process starts all over again! All proceeds will go towards the mission of our community gardens and our vision of leaving our community fuller and healthier than we found it. So keep an eye out for our luffa soaps, grown by Newark City School students and made with love the Together We Grow way.
