What did CitySprouts Inc need?

Allie helped CitySprouts Inc * Advice on how to “market” the organization with limited resources * A plan on how to broaden its reach and support base * Instruction on what are and how to utilize the most effective marketing channels available to them

Why is this project important?

CitySprouts is a school garden program that partners with the Boston and Cambridge public school districts. Our organization is unusual in the field for the depth of collaboration we have with our schools, including an annual service fee that helps support our programming. In the organization's 16 years, we have slowly built business and corporate financial support as an additional stream. With a hefty 5 new school partnerships in Boston this year, we are sure that there is potential to grow this revenue, but only if we do so thoughtfully and strategically.

This project will save us $11,198, allowing us to launch our program expansion in a sustainable way.

About CitySprouts Inc

CitySprouts school garden program helps public schools integrate garden-based learning in schools’ curriculum and culture. We address 21st century needs: hands-on learning in our public school system; good food choices for life-long health, and building a relationship with nature in urban environments.

Working with city schools and neighborhoods, our garden-based learning programs foster children’s well being in body, mind and spirit. Our programs resonate especially in neighborhoods where there are fewer places for children to safely explore nature, where fresh and local produce is difficult to access, and where schools struggle to engage children in learning that leads to success.
Fun Fact

Fun Fact

CitySprouts works with 24 urban schools during the school year, and more than 7,000 children and young teens. Children's enthusiasm for the garden inspires us, from a 3 year old's fascination with worms to a 14 year old's determination to create a garden for their neighborhood.
