Support Our Gardeners & Sustainable Agriculture in East TN
We are able to do what we do through grants and generous donations from community members like you! Build It Up is a fiscally sponsored project of the Appalachian RC&D Council, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, and your donation is tax-deductable.
Support our programming today!
Our dream is to fill our community with abundant gardens producing fresh, nutritious food that is eaten and shared by families and neighbors! However, it costs about $500 per family for us to provide supplies and training for a year of organic gardening.
We appreciate donations in any amount to help us cover the costs of helping 30-40 families a year grow their own backyard gardens. This initial investment helps to provide a lifetime of access to fresh, healthy food. Please help however you can!
“Build It Up has been a tremendous blessing for our family and we are thankful for the opportunity to be able to participate in this program.” Gwen B.
