Welcome to Gardening for Gains!
~Sowing the seeds of today’s dreams, so tomorrow they are harvested as realities.~
My mission is to share information on gardening, spread positivity, and encourage growth in all aspects of life – especially the growth of young minds.
4% of all sales from produce, clothing, & other supplies, will be donated to the Gardening 4 Gains Scholarship Fund.
Gardening 4 Gains is currently a small-scale backyard farm with dreams of growth like the wildest of pumpkin patches.
I want to be a farmer.
There, I said it.
That is my wild & crazy dream job.
I am fascinated by the process of growing; stimulated by the continued education, and thrive on the energy in, of, and around the garden. If you do not educate, prepare, and absolutely love and care about every aspect of plants, you will not survive.
Growing food is a very natural thing – the beginning of civilization stemmed from humans making a shift from the hunter/gatherer lifestyle to growing & tending to crops. Agriculture, horticulture, and the Green Industry in general is seen as the past; old school.
This is a perception that I want to drastically change.
The way of the past is the way of the future.
The Earth’s population continues to rise – how will we feed everyone? I used to absolutely hate this statistic because it seems so hyperbole – but just because we can’t comprehend the massive scale & scope, doesn’t mean it isn’t going to have a huge impact on the world.
This image is a great example of hyperbole – Earth seems like it hosts all of our problems, but in the grand scheme of everything, we are literally a pixel in comparison to the rest of the Universe! Just because we can’t fully comprehend our size or place in the universe doesn’t mean it isn’t a fact.
So, back to feeding an ever-growing, ever-changing world.
As climates become more volatile, there is an increasing need for innovation. Jobs in the Green Industry are not limited to farmers. There is a high demand for Biologists, Engineers, Salespeople, Marketers, Social Media Experts, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Welding, HVAC, Geneticists, Growers, and the list goes on and on!
Personally, I do love Sales, Marketing & Social Media, but my true love is being in the Garden or the Field. I want to spread my knowledge & passion with the world and bring more great people closer to the Green Industry & back to nature!
Inspiration is part of the recipe; empowering & enabling people to be their best is the main goal.
Gardening for Gains looks to inspire the next generation of leaders by donating 4% of all sales to scholarships initially to local students, and with increased support and reach, to larger areas as the company grows. Donations can also be made directly to the fund rather than through purchase of goods.
My goal is to raise $4,000 for scholarships this year & to distribute 4 scholarships, $1000 each, to 4 students going on to pursue any schooling – technical & trade schools will be considered the same as a 2 or 4-year University – WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO EXPLORE THE HUGE OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO THE SKILLED/TECHNICAL TRADES & I WANT TO HELP SUPPORT THAT AS WELL!
Today, the goal is $4000 to be raised for scholarships – my vision for the future is $4 billion – and we will get there! As support for Gardening 4 Gains grows, so will the farm & so will the push for fueling education funding for the future generations.
Help us make this journey a reality!
