Dear Friends of Alameda Backyard Growers!
We are pleased to kick off 2013 with exciting news!
Over the past few months, ABG has become a not-for-profit corporation, appointed a Board of Directors, and begun filing the necessary documentation to become a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. This means your future donations will be deductible to the full extent allowed by the IRS – another great reason to participate in and support ABG’s free monthly community education programs, Project Pick (formerly the Alameda Fruit Gleaning Initiative), and the "Grow A Row" Project.
We invite you - our friends and supporters - to celebrate ABG’s growth and support our community programs with a financial contribution of any amount. If you “Show Your Love” by Valentine’s Day, you will be forever known as a “Founding Donor” and will be gratefully acknowledged at ABG’s third year anniversary event, “Celebrating Our Roots”, on Sunday, February 17, 2013 from 1:15 – 4:00 PM at the Alameda Main Library.*
Our anniversary celebration will include:
Please take a moment to RVSP right now and/or become an ABG “Founding Donor."
If you prefer to make a donation offline, please make your check payable to Alameda Backyard Growers, Inc. and mail it to: Alameda Backyard Growers, Inc. c/o Birgitt Evans, Treasurer, 2829 San Jose Avenue, Alameda, CA 94501. Please include your phone number and the names you wish listed as "Founding Donors."
Please Note: Contributions received after February 14, 2013 will not qualify as a “Founding Donor."
Alameda Backyard Growers deeply appreciates your ongoing interest and support. Our remarkable success would not be possible without you!

* Please note: The library opens at 1:00 pm, doors to the event open at 1:15 pm, and we'll begin our program around 1:30 pm. We are expecting a large crowd and will not be checking RVSPs or tickets so please come early for a good seat!

Alameda Backyard Growers began in February 2010 in Alameda, CA as a grassroots network of gardeners who grow food in their own backyards and donate their extra fruits and vegetables to organizations that serve low-income residents such as the Alameda Food Bank. In the process, we get to know our neighbors, have fun, share information and resources, and grow community one veggie at a time.
