A Growing Relationship

The Blithedale store often partners with Edna Maguire Elementary School for events such as store tours, classroom education, snack donations, and seed and soil donations. This year, this wonderful relationship also included a School Garden Party!

Annual Garden Faire

Instead of hosting a separate party, Blithedale played a supporting role at the school’s Mill Valley Children’s Garden Faire. This annual fundraiser also served as the grand reopening for Edna Maguire’s newly renovated garden. 

Blithedale supported 3 activities:

  • Outdoor Classroom – donated snacks for sale
  • Crafts – donated seeds and soil for potting seedlings
  • Games – donated apples for apple bobbing

The fundraiser was incredibly successful, raising almost $12,000! These funds will continue to support the school garden and healthy eating curriculum at Edna Maguire.
