Cameron and Heather Proudfoot's Contribution Page

Show Heather and Cameron your love and support with a contribution to Seattle Tilth in honor of their marriage and beloved Grandpa John!

Trellis & rainbarrelCameron and Heather deeply appreciate your generosity in honor and celebration of Heather’s grandfather, John Conrad. 

Grandpa John was a prolific gardener, literally and metaphorically.   From early spring through late fall, he prepared and nurtured the land, seeds, fledgling shoots and the gorgeous vegetables and flowers he grew.  Until he passed away in 2009 at the age of 95, the fresh, nutritious produce of his gardens fed her family and the families of his neighbors. His flowers showered them in beauty. 

From her grandfather, Heather learned the importance of remembering where we come from, that no matter what we start with, we can create something beautiful, that no matter how little we have, we should be generous, and that love, kindness, and hard work nurture the soul and enrich our lives.  All of Seattle Tilth programs reflect the values Heather’s grandfather imparted.  Through gardening, education, and employment opportunities, they are empowering the lives of the homeless and underserved.  Moreover, with the produce they harvest, Seattle Tilth is feeding thousands of people in need.  Cameron and Heather thank you so much for supporting these great opportunities.

Education Programs

Seattle Tilth educates more than 10,000 adults and children in our classes each year. Your contribution will help provide scholarships for people who otherwise cannot afford to attend.  They will have the opportunity to learn how to garden organically, raise livestock, preserve food, raise bees, compost effectively and much more! Our education program also features five community learning gardens in Seattle and on the Eastside, teaching families how to grow food organically in their yards, containers or P-patches.
