It is hot and dry in the Nevada desert.  Please help us add a water fountain and shade structure to The Greenhouse Project's location so that students and volunteers stay hydrated and healthy.  The Greenhouse Project works with special needs and agriculture students at the Carson City area high school to grow produce for local food banks and the high school Culinary Program. This non-profit also hosts field trips and community events to share awareness of growing healthful produce and building community. It is a true circle of life and giving.

But currently, there is very litte shade on site and no drinking fountain while volunteers and students are working in the beds or greenhouse.  We're trying to minimize the use of plastic bottles and endless disposable cups, yet we must have provisions for drinking and a shady spot for resting (and teaching!) - the temps reach into the triple digits in summer and the humidity dips into the single digits - we're hot and thirsty!

Funds donated are tax deductible and we'll provide a receipt.  The money will be used to purchase and install a water fountain and to building a shade shelter/outdoor classroom for our dedicated volunteers and students. We already have grapes and kiwi vines to grow up the sides of this future structure. Thank you for helping us 'be cool!'.  And come visit the Carson City Greenhouse Project and see everything in action!
