We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made A Plan BEE Event possible. The night was a success, filled with delicious food and drink, wonderful people and a fabulous film all in the name of the bees! Guests left with a gift bag full of goodies, a belly full of food and an overwhelming appreciation for the hard work that those bees do to keep our food system buzzing!

Bee twins! Our worker bees enjoy goodies at A Plan BEE Event.

Special thanks to Jason McRobbie, ”the good food dude,” who entertained us all as the auctioneer and helped raise money for FarmFolk CityFolk and The World in a Garden, and to Allen Garr, for appearing as our guest speaker and displaying such amazing commitment to the precious pollinators.

Big thanks to all of our other sponsors for their donations of lip balm, fresh bread, granola bars, apples, tea, seeds, granola and more!! We couldn’t have done it without you…

GIVING WITH A “WORLD” OF MEANING

The World in a Garden is excited to announce a new way to do your holiday giving as well as help the garden grow! This year  Seeds of Plenty’s ethical gift baskets will donate $5 of every basket back to the garden!

Here’s more from Seeds of Plenty:

This little sprouted cookie company makes baskets of huge value!

Filled with a  variety of artisan products by those who share our commitment to social responsibility and environmental sustainability the value of our product reaches far beyond your dollar. Our baskets feature local companies who are committed to ethical sourcing of ingredients and products.

With a focus on food provenance we are showcasing companies such as Dao Tea, Farmstead Wines, Terra Breads and of course our own organic sprouted flour cookies made from ancient grains.  From our hands to your mouth each cookie is made with the finest fair trade and organic ingredients with your health and taste buds in mind.

Please view this Seeds of Plenty Holiday Basket Order Form to contact us about our signature or custom made baskets to fill your corporate or personal gift needs.  

Also this year we are featuring Water Hyacinth baskets. Water Hyacinth is an invasive water weed found throughout  Africa and China where it has infested many water bodies, causing a decline of native biodiversity & deterioration of aquatic environments as well as  the spread of malaria. Creating a viable ecological and economical solution to the problem, locals are harvesting the water hyacinth to manufacture basket and furniture – and we want to support them!

 Seeds of Plenty also offers the perfect stocking stuffer or holiday treat with our individual packages of 6 cookies. Orders can be processed by email, phone or on our website at www.seedsofplenty.com   Please pass this along to family, friends and colleagues.

May this message find you well and we wish you a wonderful holiday season!
