How you can help...

So you want to help make it happen?

There are many things you can do to ensure that our community becomes healthier, stronger, and happier.  Help local under-privileged families have access to healthy, fresh and affordable foods, blighted neighborhoods can be spruced up with public art, and safety and the protection of our natural resources is increased.

    * Ask your employer if they have a corporate donation program (often they do and are more than willing to donate to non-profits if their employee asks) that can go toward The Grain Project.

    Organize and hold a fundraiser - garage sales, dinners, auctions - there are many easy ways to make a big impact toward our mission.

    Conduct outreach in the community - spread the word about our important work.  Share our information, website and Facebook page with family, friends, and co-workers.

    Help tend the maintenance of the Jerome CommUnity Learning Garden.

    The Grain Project would like to invite you to give the gift of health and food to a family in need.  The availability of healthy food and exercise within a community that is plagued with obesity, diabetes, and poverty is a challenge.  However, we have addressed these issues by creating a cooperative teaching garden at Jerome Park in central Santa Ana.  It is the first of its kind in the city, and the first garden sponsored by the City of Santa Ana.  This strategic location has ensured that healthy food choices and opportunities are made available to those who are most in need of such resources.

    With your sponsorship, members from the community will have the opportunity to join our Garden Club, where they can plant, nurture, and harvest local produce that they themselves have grown.  Participating families have enjoyed the dignity, honor, and healthy benefits of growing their own produce.  By sponsoring an individual or a family, you can ensure that more families have access to healthy foods and exercise.  You will also be able to help bring more community gardens to other locations within the city.

    Please consider supporting a community gardener for only $50.00 for one year.  This will provide him / her with all of the seeds, garden tools, and equipment necessary to grow a healthy harvest of fruits and vegetables.  Your donation of $100.00 will care for a family of four over the course of one year.  You can sponsor one or more community members by donating securely here through Paypal (credit cards accepted), or you can send your donation by mail to us. Donations are tax-deductible. EIN#20-0589878
