Special Gifts


The perfect gift for the person who has everything.

Or to make a general donation, DONATE HERE

This holiday season let's celebrate the values that connect folks in Southwest Colorado across political lines: the western grit of self-sufficiency, a connection to the land, and growing our own food for the health of our children and the health of our local economy.

Rather than building walls to divide people, school and community gardens are literally breaking them down, to bring people together.

Our vision is a garden program in every school & community in La Plata County. We need YOUR help to bring people together.

Share the joy by making a donation in honor of a special someone on your list and we will send them a beautiful gardening postcard to let them know you care! (Like Heifer International, where you buy a family a goat - with The Garden Project you are buying supplies for our school and community gardens and providing scholarships for low-income families.)

Be sure to donate by December 14th, 2016 if you want a Christmas delivery.

We'll send you a tax deductible receipt for your donation. Give today!

4 Easy Steps:

1. Enter the quantity next to the item you would like to donate (select as many different items and quantities as you would like)

2. Click "Purchase Tickets" at the bottom of the page to buy your gift.

3. Donate via Paypal (You don't need a Paypal account).

4. Fill out the form "We need additional info for your gift". Provide the gift recipient's name & mailing address for where you would like the postcard sent. If you have a preference, please tell us which garden you would like your donation to go towards.

It's that simple! We'll take care of the rest and your Christmas shopping is complete!

NOTE: For Christmas gifts for 2016 - You must place your order by December 14th at the latest! Thank you for helping us grow a healthier community together!
