Earthwise announces pizza garden fundraiser

Proceeds fund local conservation, education efforts

Gardening has been all the rage since the pandemic hit, so Earthwise Agassiz’s recent annoucement couldn’t have been timed better.

Earthwise Agassiz is hosting a Pizza Garden Seedling Fundraiser sale, and proceeds from the fundraiser will support the organization in their work to restore and grow delicate ecosystems on their specialized site.

“Earthwise has put together carefully curated Pizza Garden seedling kits containing an assortment of herbs and veggies that will make the perfect toppings for your homemade pizzas,” their statement reads. “”Each kit contains 10 organically grown seedlings, with a selection of different kinds of tomatoes, including cherry, heirloom, and Roma tomatoes, sweet peppers, and a variety of herbs. Individual seedlings are also available for purchase.”

The pizza garden offers a great summer gardening project for all ages and skills. The garden can be grown on a patio or balcony and also work well in the yard if space is available.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will also support the Earthwise Society’s community programs and their outdoor programs for kids.

Ordering is open until Friday (May 22) with drive-thru pickup available on the subsequent Saturday (May 23) and Sunday (May 24) at Earthwise Agassiz, located at 6301 Golf Road.

For ordering information, please email caretaker@earthwisesociety.bc.ca or call 604-946-9828. For more information about the work Earthwise does, visit them online at http://www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca/earthwise-agassiz.
