Paint It Forward!

‘Tis the season for fundraisers and these juicy Heirloom tomatoes are the first of several art donations this spring.  These three 5×5″ oil on canvas gallery blocks were painted to raise money for the Community Garden Collective.  As a Master Gardener volunteer and member of the CGC, it’s been a pleasure working with the energetic and passionate group of individuals associated with the organization.  We collectively built over 30 raised beds (including plots designated for local food pantries) last fall using the permaculture method and now we’re in need of irrigation and fencing among other things.  Raffle tickets for these paintings will be sold at The Salt Exchange during First Friday Art Walk from 5-8pm tomorrow night, at Scratch Baking Co. from 9-11am this Saturday morning, and during fundraising night at Flatbread Co. on Tuesday, April 17 from 5-9pm.  Tickets can also be acquired by sending an email to  The drawing will be held on Earth Day, April 21st.
