Dig It! 2014
Thank you to everyone who came out to support CitySprouts Dig It! 2014
We raised $70,000 from Dig It! 2014 at the Liberty Hotel March 13th. Our best Dig It! yet! The funds will be used to launch a new forum for Boston & Cambridge teachers to learn and share garden-based teaching practices. The funds will also be used to increase food access & education through FoodCorps & other CitySprouts partnership and to develop schoolyards as vibrant edible learning gardens. This summer, CitySprouts program will expand to Higginson-Lewis Elementary School in Boston.
“We are here because we believe in this type of education. We believe young people in urban environments deserve to know where their food comes from, how to grow food, what healthy food looks like, and that in fact it is available for them as well.” Chief Felix Arroyo, Dig It! 2014
