A note about the “Food Grown Here” signs from Becca S @ Seedleaf:
I know many of you are food activists and consider access to healthy, fresh, and affordable food to be an issue not only of social justice but also of personal mental, physical, and spiritual health. As such, I know many of you are also gardeners, and so I thought you would be interested in a fun new awareness campaign for Lexington.
“Food Grown Here” yard signs were produced with generous funding by the Bluegrass Community Foundation, and it is our hope that we can circulate them throughout town to promote hope and energy around local food, and also establish a sense of community and shared values over homegrown food.
We’re asking for a $10 donation for each sign, with every penny going towards the East End Renaissance Fund, helping to revitalize and beautify the East End of Lexington – an area where Seedleaf and the Bluegrass Community Foundation are hard at work promoting the joy and empowerment of homegrown food.
“Food Grown Here” signs will be available at most Seedleaf events, or contact us directly with your name and address and we’ll figure out how we can connect. Stay tuned to see maps tracking theses spreading signs!
We are grateful to Cricket Press for their great design, and we’re sure you’ll agree that these signs will make a lovely addition to your yard!
Please help us spread the word!
All the best,
P.S. Please note that there is no “minimum” requirement to be considered growing food. Even if you have pots of herbs above your kitchen sink, you should still feel free to get a sign!
