Seattle Tilth has been such an inspiration in my life and many of my friends. I was able to finally garden successfully with their help, and have since become highly active in urban agriculture, have expanded into owning chickens, rabbits, bees, and garden extensively. I'm so glad to see their programs expanding to teach urbanites how to compost and garden. They're really filling a unique niche. When I first became involved with Seattle Tilth, their demographic was somewhat limited, but I feel they've really reached out to more low-income and diverse communities in the past couple of years, and continue to impress me with their hard work.

I was looking for a summer internship with a non profit and Tilth provided me with that experience and much more. They took the time to introduce me to their organization and allowed me to really explore the many sides of their operations. Being a small non profit, I was able to work on small to large projects and felt like I was able to make a big difference in the small amount of time I was there. I continue to work with them when I can and always try to support and promote their events and programs.

I had more responsibility, though my time there was short and my education and experience was minimal. Had I continued to volunteer regularly, I would definitely have had opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills with the organization.

As a graduate student finishing up my masters degree in Environmental Education, I was recommended to contact Seattle Tilth by the garden/teaching staff from the IslandWood garden I worked and taught in last year. Since June of 2009, we have been working together to get my master's project for the University of Washington "into" the ground so to speak!! They have not only provided material and staff supports, but genuine interest in the project as well--fostering and inspiring the project even further! They have been instrumental in the development of this project and I am fortunate to have access to such a supportive organization/community!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

taking their COG (comprehensive gardening) class this past spring. It was one of the best classes I've had all year---and as a grad student I've taken a lot of classes! From their hands-on approach, to the guides provided, the learners' needs were met.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more garden space for teaching, more materials for their teaching spaces, more staff to facilitate more classes at the gardens they have, better pay for their staff and more classes at lower cost for the public!

Ways to make it better...

There would have been smaller groups, more gardening space to work, more staff to work with the groups, and stools to sit on during the lecture components!

Seattle Tilth is often thought of as an gardening organization, not an organization that has a significant impact on region's environment. I think that is unfortunate and short sighted and here's why: Gardening takes the abstract idea of the

I have learned a lot from volunteering at the Good Shepherd Center Demonstration Garden. There is plenty of variety in gardening tasks and many opportunities to work with knowledgeable gardeners and teachers. The garden also has many excellent demonstrations of techniques that anyone can learn from

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with others in the garden. Its great to have mentors and partners in any task and I learn a lot from all of them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

dispense with fundraising and spend all its time teaching the residents of greater seattle how to grow food.

Ways to make it better...

didn't have to be so concerned with how the garden "looks" to funding organizations.

Review from Guidestar

I've been a volunteer for Seattle Tilth for 11 years, and I just keep signing up for more because it's such a wonderful organization. The classes they provide are excellent quality and affordable, the events are festive, educational, and help to build a flourishing community. The beneficial impact Tilth has on our community is long reaching. Seattle Tilth, has taught me to grow my own food, keep chickens and bees, compost, conserve water, eliminate toxic chemicals in my yard, reduce storm water run off, and to support the local farmers to build a sustainable food system. They also have provided me with many learning opportunities through volunteering and helped me to connect with other people in the community. Thank you Seattle Tilth for all you do for our environment and community!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the yards around Seattle. Tilth provides education about organic gardening specific to the NW. They make it easy for us to grow our own food, compost, conserve water, and eliminate pesticides, we're lucky to have this amazing resource!

Seattle Tilth has been my urban agriculture home for a good three years now! I started out on a Veggie Crew, then began volunteering and taking every class I could get my hands on, and am now receiving credit at Antioch University for my intern position in the Good Shepherd Center Learning Garden! Seattle Tilth has supported my learning in every way, showing me how to grow my own food, maintain a teaching garden, and teach others how to grow food, too! Through Tilth, I've also been able to connect with other diverse gardening communities and create a network of amazing teachers and cohorts in the world of sustainable urban agriculture. I love Seattle Tilth!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own ability to grow food in my backyard, harvest rain water, maintain a worm bin, and engage in a much larger conversation about how we live on the earth and what kinds of communities we want to build for our future.

More feedback...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

highly knowledgable, engaged, friendly and supportive. I've found many friends in the staff and volunteer base of Tilth.
