Project Details

What We Need
  • Final designs for a predetermined type of promotional apparel (e.g., t-shirts, hats, shorts, other swag) or merchandise (mugs, pens, tote bags, etc.) provided in the high-resolution format of the Organization's choice
  • Note: Printing and vendor sourcing is not included
Additional Details

Hi! We would like to embellish our logo in about 4 various ways, to then assign to go on a handful of products. The embellishment may be certain plants, animals, or tag lines. All centered around the farm.

Hats - A canvas baseball cap and a straw hat with a logo patch.



A Mens, Womens, and Youth tee/tank

Tote Bag

What We Have In Place
  • As the production and retail manager, I will be available to discuss and answer questions about this project M-F, 9-5.

    We also have an online website where you can see past examples of our merch (and some of our current merch).
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to hire more homeless folks for our transitional employment program - working both on our farm and in our workshop.

As an organization that just celebrated its 30th anniversary, we have a strong place in our community here in Santa Cruz. Yet we are actively seeking more volunteers and recruiting more "trainees," or homeless folks to join our transitional employment program. Getting our organization's name out in the community, and spreading our mission through word of mouth, is the most valuable way to keep our organization strong.
