We are asking the community to please step up and help us fill the funding gap that was created when our dear friend and major benefactor, Bonnie Mitsui, passed away. Without community support the gardens cannot open this spring.
Debra Ward and Mark Dalton are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary this year.
Long-time fans of Granny's Garden School they decided to celebrate their Silver anniversary with a donation to the "fill the gap" fund.
They are offering to match every dollar donated to the program between now and Tuesday, February 18th, up to $2,500.
We appreciate Debra and Mark for supporting our efforts. With their support and yours, the school garden program will begin as scheduled and we will continue the tradition of "Growing the future by teaching children in the gardens."
Thank you, Granny

I feel that your program tremendously enhances the education that the children of Loveland (including my children) receive and as a parent value your program immensely. Your program not only teaches the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables for our health, it also enhances all parts of the student's education. It provides hands on learning and direct life experiences in relation to science concepts, math problems and literature and important background knowledge needed for the comprehension of these subjects.
In my experience as a former special educator, any hands on education greatly enhances a student's learning. I see this program as a positive asset to the Loveland school district and should be advertised as being an important component to our children's education. I also feel that this program has a positive and far reaching benefit to the Loveland community as well, in that it donates produce to the local food banks and flowers to elders.
I hope that this program is able to continue and receives favorable support from all of the administration as this type of gardening program seems to be a growing idea and beneficial to the children and community. Many larger communities and mayors seem to be starting these gardening programs, so it seems that the Loveland School district has a large head start!!
