I took the Chickens 101 class and learned a ton about backyard chicken keeping. The class gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed to set up a coop and take care of chickens in my back yard. Now I'm reaping all the benefits!

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

expand its outreach to and education of all different types of communities to give more people the power to grow food

This is such a wonderful organization! They've helped me make some of my most primary decisions, like where my food comes from. My family is almost completely self sufficient food-wise -- we have a garden, an efficient composting set up, milk goats, laying hens and honey bees. And we're just 2 blocks from Green Lake (very urban indeed). We never would have imagined we could do this without the Tilth classes - they were informative and inspiring.

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

developing my urban farm.

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

it is low key, professional experts, but not a lot of polish, so I know they are using their nonprofit dollars wisely

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

professional and knowledgeable

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

Feed the world : )

Seattle Tilth is on the move to educate and activate the community in growing its own food here in Seattle and the surrounding community. They provide the best information for what to grow and how to grow it! The urban food movement is growing by leaps and bounds. I like it that their work teaches us how to stop stormwater polllution with safe gardening techniques.

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

the use of their knowledge in growing my garden for best yield and donation to local food banks.

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

The creative ways they communicate with their audience to engage you to garden, help others, use best practices, etc.

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

Very well informed and good communicators.

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

Spread the word more effectively using local media, purchase property that can be converted to gardening "parks."

learning more about organic gardening.
