Every year the Soroptimist International of Sacramento puts on a fundraising event called the East Sacramento Edible Gardens Tour where 6 gardens are featured.
And guess who’s house will be on the 2014 tour? MINE!!!
Since I moved to Sacramento I have gone on the last two tours. It is one of my favorite East Sac events because it has to do with edible gardens. There are plenty of other house tours in Sacramento but this one is dedicated to people growing food. They have a master gardener stationed at each house and musicians from Sacramento Symphonic Winds to provide lovely music as you stroll through the gardens.
Soroptimist International of Sacramento puts on this event as their fundraiser and proceeds go to support women and children in the Sacramento community. This year’s tour proceeds will go to the St. John’s Shelter Program for Real Change which helps mothers in crisis to improve their quality of life and enrich the lives of their families. The garden tour funds will directly support their Employment Readiness Program to help mothers gain and maintain employment. The second charity is Sierra Forever Families which works helps foster children connect with nurturing permanent families. The garden tour funds will directly support Camp Wonder where foster youth connect with adult mentors. So if you go on the tour you can feel good that your dollars are going to help our community.
Did I mention that MY HOUSE is going to be on the tour??
