Thanks to You
Do you have any idea what you've done?
Gardener's Supply employees volunteered to help with cleanup efforts in Waterbury, VT, after Hurricane Irene.
Johanna Willins, one of our Garden Crusaders, started growing herbs and vegetables in an abandoned lot in her Brooklyn, NY, neighborhood. She helped develop a local farmer's market that has transformed a neighborhood that did not have access to fresh produce.
Gardener's Supply has been supporting Vermont's Healthy City school gardens since 2002. Healthy City Youth Initiative was recently named one of the top 10 farm-to-school programs in the U.S.
These farmers work in the "backyard" of our Burlington, VT, headquarters, on a stretch of land called the Intervale. More than 25 years ago, Gardener's Supply began a community-wide effort to revitalize this unique region and reinvigorate local, sustainable agriculture. The result is the Intervale Center, a nonprofit that oversees land stewardship and farming activities on about 350 acres.
You've done a lot of good — and you probably don't even realize it. But every time you shop with us, you make a difference in the lives of people you've never met. How? Every purchase you make directly supports our mission of improving the world through gardening by funding grants, donations and employee volunteer-time.
When you chose Gardener's Supply for earth-friendly solutions, garden-tested gear, or nature-inspired gifts, you do more than make a smart shopping decision. You help us make the world a better place.
Thank you! We couldn't do it without you. Here are a few of the efforts your support has made possible:
- We've volunteered thousands of hours of time to causes as varied as hunger relief, homelessness, and local hurricane recovery projects.
- We've grown and given away over 10,000 pounds of desperately needed food to people in our community just this year.
- We've honored dozens of Garden Crusaders across the country with cash awards and public recognition. Crusaders are outstanding individuals who are improving their communities through gardening projects.
- We've donated more than $1 million in cash and products to non-profit gardening, hunger-relief and community organizations.

Our work goes on. Every day we get requests for donations from individuals and groups who are doing great things for their communities and schools, like supplying healthful food to those who might not otherwise have access to it, promoting environmental stewardship, teaching kids about nutrition, and introducing at-risk youth and disenfranchised adults to the joys and rewards of gardening.
