Growing your own fresh food is fun, can improve your health, and is a great family activity! 

You can select what your donation will support from four options via the "Designation" line during the Donation process:

Raised Bed Replacement Fund:  Every growing season Master Gardeners make repairs to our numerous individual garden beds within our four demonstration gardens.  This fund will specifically set aside monies for replacement raised beds of various construction techniques.  Our demonstration gardens are located at Anna Smith Children's Garden,  Blueberry Park, Heritage Garden at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds, and Raab Park Youth Garden.


Garden Shed Replacement Fund:  Over the years, each of our gardens have repaired, added new, or otherwise performed maintenance on these critical garden structures.  Several of our gardens have sheds that are approaching the end of their useful life.  This fund is designed to have money available to build new sheds when they are needed.


New South Sound garden:  your donation will be set aside so that once planning is complete for a new Master Gardener demonstration garden in the south end of Kitsap County, the Foundation will have the funds available to support the project! 


General Fund: to help provide seeds, soil, garden bed maintenance items for our demonstration gardens; and prepare for summer children’s education programs;
