Holiday Giving: Crown Point Membership, Community Outreach

Is there someone on your gift-giving list who already has everything they need?

Maybe you have a loved one who has asked for “less stuff” this holiday season.

Perhaps you’re looking for gifts that give back or the opportunity to give someone an experience you know they will enjoy all year long. And the gift of a Crown Point membership or a donation to our First Fruits Initiative requires no gift wrapping. A membership is an especially nice gift to your friends who would like to have early bird privilege to our annual plant sale, discounts on CSA purchases, and Summer Farm and Science Camp tuition.

The First Fruits Initiative* is Crown Point’s outreach to the community.

The following are some of the good works Crown Point does through its First Fruits Initiative:

  • Donate fresh, organic produce to the Akron-Canton Regional FoodBank each year.  To date, this program has donated more than 15,000 lbs of produce.
  • Donate plants from our annual Organic Plant Sale to community and school gardens.
  • Offer scholarships to children in need each summer to attend Crown Point’s Summer Farm and Science Camp.
  • Provide educational outreach to schools about a variety of topics, such as sustainability, recycling and organic farming.

 

Donate to Crown Point’s First Fruits Initiative.

Please add in the comments section that your donation is specifically for the First Fruits Initiative.

*Crown Point derives the name First Fruits from the Bible, where the term is used in many passages. Perhaps the one that shares our view the best comes from Proverbs 3:9-10:

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
