Seattle has a wonderful city-funded community
gardening program, P-Patch which is supported by a non-profit organization, The
Friends of P-Patch (FPP). FPP invites participants in the P-Patch Program
to join and support community gardening through voluntary contributions which
are then used to provide services to the gardeners. Currently about
2/5 of the program participants are also members/contributors to FPP.
FPP is trying to increase its membership and enhance membership
If you know of any non-profit community gardening
support organizations which have a membership for fee or donation and which
provide member benefits, plz let me know. I am especially interested in
benefits provided, how you attract new members, how you communicate with
members, how you involve them, etc. Also looking for creative fundraising
Thanks for your time.
