Gardening Resources & Opportunities with Willamalane
Grow fresh produce and learn the basics of gardening this spring! The G.R.O.W. (Gardening Resources & Opportunities with Willamalane) Project will set you up with a kit including everything you need, hand-built by Willamalane staff and volunteers with generous contributions from community sponsors.
- A raised garden bed constructed out of cedar. Not only are they weather-proof and built to last, they’re also deep enough to accommodate most produce.
- All the screws and hardware needed to assemble your kit. You’ll need your own tools. (Or, pay a little extra for a pre-assembled box!)
- Instructions and gardening resources.
- Garden-ready, pre-fertilized soil.
- Seed packets for several different veggies.
- 3'X3' box: $65 in-district, $78 out-of-district. Pre-order here.
- 6'X3' box: $85 in-district, $102 out-of-district. Pre-order here.
How can you order your G.R.O.W. kit?
Order up to three G.R.O.W. kits using the links above. Kits come ready for assembly, but if you’d like some help assembling your kit, we can help! If you request for your kit to be assembled, please consider making a $10 donation to our G.R.O.W. Project scholarship fund.
When your box is ready, we’ll arrange curbside pick-up at Splash! Lively Park, 6100 Thurston Road. Box pick-up will be outside of the building, to the left of the front doors.
G.R.O.W. kits will remain on sale through May while supplies last.
Want to donate to the G.R.O.W. scholarship fund?
If you like what we’re doing and would like to help Springfield families who could use a kit, please consider making a donation to our G.R.O.W. scholarship fund. At the end of your registration process, you’ll see an option to donate to the fund with your checkout.
In 2022, donations to the G.R.O.W. Project scholarship fund support kit donations to two partners in Springfield and Eugene. One recipient is The Keystone, which is permanent supportive housing in Eugene for at-risk, unhoused families. The second recipient is Hayden Bridge Landing, which is public housing conversion in Springfield with resident services from Homes for Good. The kits will be available for residents of these housing complexes, and we hope it makes gardening available to as many people as possible.
Many Thanks to Our Sponsors
