Green Garden Bakery youth, supported by the nonprofit Urban Strategies, Inc., grow vegetables in their urban garden, bake them into healthy vegetable-based desserts (vegan and gluten-free), and market them using sustainable practices. The youth sell the desserts for “pay-what-you-want” and donate proceeds back to the community.
Green Garden Bakery sells their goods at farmers markets, community events and online. They hope to get their wholesale license soon so they can sell in stores like Seward Co-op! The SEED grant will help Green Garden Bakery get their commercial kitchen space up and running this fall!
Kuzala SEED Deal
Kuzala is again partnering with us to give our SEED program a boost. Purchase Kuzala Macaroons in June and they'll donate 10% of proceeds to Green Garden Bakery!
About Seward Co-op’s SEED Grant Program
For more than 45 years, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced SEED, a new way for customers to participate in this commitment. This simple yet powerful community giving program allows customers to round up their grocery or Seward Co-op Creamery Café bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community. As part of the staff-led selection process for 2019, owners and shoppers were invited to contribute further by voting for Community Choice SEED recipients.
