A Request from the Beckwitch for Her School Garden Initiative


Direct from The Beckwitch Penny Foster:

I’ve initiated a school garden initiative where I’m volunteering with local schools to start school and classroom gardens. I didn’t anticipate such a huge response and I’m wondering if anyone has any of the following to share and spare:


300 Plastic or paper cups – an alternative is those little yogurt containers cleaned and washed.
9 rolls Saran wrap
500 Elastics
500 popsicle sticks
9 sealed bags of starter soil (it is sometimes called germinating mix too). Note, I’m saying sealed because I will be transporting all these items to the school myself.
My first school will reach almost 300 students, so I’ve included the quantities I will need before each item.
While I’m available to pick items up as time permits I will be upfront in stating it would be awesome if you could drop them off in one of the boxes on my porch as I’m collecting a lot of items and drop offs would allow me to dedicate more time and efforts to my garden program initiatives.
As this is a multiple item and large request I will ask you to comment below and I will try to respond to offers each evening and update my quantities required above each day (….this is my effort at being efficient… but it may not work lol).
Thank you for your consideration.
Happy Giving!
