Greening Lodi Cleanup THIS SATURDAY – Love Lodi Project

Hi Lodi Green Thumbs we’re back!

In truth, we never left. Lodi News-Sentinel readers will know we helped students at Joe Serna Charter School in East Lodi (Heritage District) build some planter boxes last year. But our P.R. department has been a little lacking! Probably because we don’t have a P.R. person.

We are as grassroots as a nonprofit can be (no pun intended); we have only 3 board members, who all have full-time jobs. We remain dedicated to our mission; we’re just too busy to promote ourselves!

We have a new project this Saturday, April 13, as part of the annual Love Lodi day of volunteering. We’ll be clearing weeds from our pollinator garden at the corner of Main & Elm streets (104 E. Elm Street, Lodi, CA 95240).

Later this spring, San Joaquin 4-H will use our garden for a seeding demonstration, and provide us with some needed flowers!

You can find out more about the project here.

We hope to see you Saturday!

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!
