The Exotic Houseplant Sale is more than just a fun evening. In part, it is also a fundraiser for Green Lady Gardens' nonprofit, Primary Plants (application pending). The mission of Primary Plants is to give the therapeutic benefits of indoor gardening to underserved & disadvantaged primary school children in the Denver metro area, with a particular focus on Title 1 schools & immigrant & refugee children.
The event is free but we ask for a donation at the door of $5 - $10. Profits from door donations, raffle & VIP ticket sales, silent auction sales, & $1 from each drink at the cash bar will go to Primary Plants. Funds raised will be used to:
Create a logo.
Build a website.
Host at least one indoor gardening event at a Title 1 Denver Public School before the end of the school year. Over the summer we will be making plans for multiple events to be held with a variety of age groups at a variety of schools. Children will receive a pot & a plant & learn about indoor gardening, the benefits it provides, how to repot, & how to care for their plant.
Cover administrative costs such as website hosting & bookkeeping.
Promote Primary Plants to raise awareness about the organization so we can have a larger presence in the 2019/2020 school year.
Offset costs of another fundraiser we hope to host this fall.
Green Lady Gardens thanks you so much for your support & donations. If you are a teacher at a Title 1 school in the Denver Public School District, contact to discuss collaboration.
