Rowland Hall 3rd grade_thank you letter_Plant Sale 2014 photo by Felecia Maxfield-Barrett

When working for a nonprofit, it is often difficult to measure the public good and impact we make on the rest of the world.  In fact, I would say it is close to impossible to measure the butterfly effect.  But today, we got a chance to see a little bit of the difference Wasatch Community Garden made, not only in our own local community, but in the world.

When we received this letter in the mail from Rowland Hall’s 3rd grade class, our hearts swelled with joy.  With some of the plants from our 2014 Plant Sale, they were able to raise $1,450 for Malaria bed nets, which we estimate is 150 bed nets.  Today, we are proud!
