Lending a Helping Hand = Good Karma

I am primarily a portrait photographer.  But on occasion, I have been known to rock the non-profit event!  As such, one of the non-profit organizations I offer my services to is

The Dinner Garden.

Last week they held an event at La Taza  to help raise money for their monthly bills and for small things, that most of us take for granted, like ink for the printer and also for supplies to send out seeds.

The Dinner Garden™ provides seeds, gardening supplies, and gardening advice free of charge to all people in the United States of America. They assist those in need in establishing food security for their families. And their goal is for people to plant home, neighborhood, and container gardens so they can use the vegetables they grow for food and income.

At their events they pass out packets of seeds providing people with vegetable seeds, free of charge.  To get people started on their way to planting, maintaining and harvesting from their own, zone appropriate, garden, The Dinner Garden helps support their efforts with gardening information and tips for cheap gardening in the space they have available.

The events aren’t just about passing out seeds though…

there was live country music provided by Caleb Haynes

and good eats as well!

At this event, Holly Hirshberg, Founder and Executive Director of The Dinner Garden, and 2011 CNN HERO, provided an extra added bonus by selling aprons sewn by Dinner Garden volunteers!

Way to go Holly!

No matter what religious background or affiliation you align with, lending out a helping hand is always good.  You help them, they help others and eventually, when you least expect it (and desperately need it) that help comes back to you…sometimes Ten fold.

If you are willing to donate, time/money/or other, please contact The Dinner Garden at info@dinnergarden.org.
