How does my garden grow? Solar power

The Garden Project of Southwest Colorado and Manna Soup Kitchen are teaming to grow food in a greenhouse to keep Manna supplied with vegetables through the winter.

But they need a grant from Envirokidz to pay for a solar-powered greenhouse. The funds also will cover a stipend for the project coordinator and The Garden Project staff time.

A lot of votes for the project on Facebook will help the cause. A vote for the Manna Soup Kitchen garden can be registered by going to http://apps.facebook.com/envirokidzaward/contests/298786/voteable_entries/61026121 and clicking on the vote button.

The grant the campaign is seeking is for $15,000. The total project budget is $24,500.
