The Bell Homeless Shelter Garden  
And finally, we want to share some lovely words and photos from our friend, Brad Pregerson (also a cousin of our ace Nursery Assistant, Elliot), who does incredible work at the Bell Homeless Shelter:

Dear Jo Anne and Alejandro,
Attached are some pictures from our latest crop from the Bell Homeless  Shelter garden.  All the veggies came from plants purchased from Two Dog.  The tomato plants, as you can see from the pictures, have been prolific.  My team and I have delivered pounds of tomatoes and cucumbers to the Shelter's kitchen each week.  
As I have mentioned to you before, the Bell Shelter is the largest homeless shelter west of the Mississippi serving veterans and homeless men and women.  The Shelter's kitchen serves approximately 6,000 meals per week.  Their budget for fresh produce is a mere $300 per week, so the kitchen staff is forced to purchase the lowest grade fruits and vegetables.  Thus, the food served at the Shelter is marginal.  My non-profit, GrowGood, seeks to transform the one-acre vacant lot across from the Shelter into a garden that can provide fruits and veggies to the Shelter's kitchen as well as therapeutic and job training opportunities for the Shelter's more than 350 residents.   
We are grateful for all your support and for supplying us with healthy wonderful plants, so we can continue our mission to serve the residents and staff of Bell Shelter.  

Brad Pregerson   

You're welcome, Brad!! "Good on ya" for the work you do, and we look forward to helping you with continued bountiful harvests!

And if any of our Two Dog friends are inspired to help out, please contact Brad through his non-profit,

Many thanks!

That's it for now! We hope to see you this coming Sunday! 

Jo Anne, Alex, Jake & Lalo
