Visit us downtown Saturday and buy your raffle tickets!

This kayak could be yours for just $5!

Have you bought your raffle tickets yet? If you don’t want to use PayPal, come buy them in person this Saturday! Our board president and resident Master Gardener, Curt Juran, will be at the plaza on the corner of School and Oak Streets from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., right outside the Lodi Post Office. He’ll have the kayak on display, as well as information on our non-profit and gardening in general. Please come bother him!

There’s still plenty of time to buy: Our raffle will be held at 11 a.m. on August 1 at the Headwaters Kayak Shop, 847 N Cluff Ave in Lodi.

Greening Lodi is a 501©(3) non-profit registered with the State of California, so all raffle ticket purchases are tax deductible!

Our fundraising raffle is almost as hot as the weather!

Thanks to Dan Arbuckle of the Headwaters Kayak Shop (and his massive social media following), we had a very good first weekend for our raffle. So far, we’ve sold more than 100 tickets – a big thanks to everyone who has contributed.

But we’re not done! There’s still three weeks until the raffle, which means there’s still time to enter. Can you spare $20 for a great cause? How about $5?

After personally carrying the kayak in 108 degrees on Saturday, allow me to tell you: it’s pretty sweet. The green looks great, there’s a tackle box compartment and it’s quite sturdy. So sturdy, in fact, that I would almost be willing to use it! (I’m a chicken).

It can be yours for a small $5 donation to the best new non-profit in Lodi. Feeling lucky??? Buy your raffle tickets now:


We’re having a raffle!

Have you been dying to support Lodi’s best new non-profit, but don’t have the time? Well, now here’s the perfect opportunity!

We’re raffling off a kayak, and it’s a real beaut. The kayak comes courtesy of a generous donation from Dan Arbuckle of The Headwaters Kayak Shop. Our Main & Elm garden site has been a success, and now we want to plant another garden; you can help us do that by supporting our raffle.

So check this thing out: The Stealth™ 10 Angler Kayak is 10-feet long, and perfect for experienced kayakers or beginners. You can use it to cruise the waters of Lake Tahoe, or take it on a fishing expedition – it accommodates a tackle box!

The kayak has a lime/green color scheme and retails for $569.00. But if you’re lucky, it can be yours for $5!

Raffle tickets are now available for $5 a piece, or receive 5 tickets for $20. The drawing will be August 1.
