Living Earth Center believes that each person makes a valuable contribution to the world and systemic change can be traced all the way down to the individual level.
Like so many families and organizations in this new Covid-world, Living Earth Center has adapted to the challenges and reexamined what is most important and how we can make a positive impact within our community. With economic and food insecurity surging and political and social divisiveness at an all-time high, Living Earth Center remains committed to bringing people together to share common ground. During this last garden season, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to accomplish the following:
- 1614 lbs. of produce that LEC staff and volunteers grew, harvested, and donated to local community partners including Feeding Our Community Partners Back Pack Food Program, ECHO Food Shelf, Mankato MYPlace, and Partners for Affordable Housing.
- 12 Garden Scholarships were awarded
- 110 Community Gardeners and their families had a place to grow healthy food and quality relationships
- 20 Programs and Workshops were put on surrounding topics ranging from Gardening and Soil, to Land Ethics and Traditional Indigenous Beadwork.
Donate today to help us continue to support our community.
