Saturday was a beautiful evening for “Wine in the Garden” at Hamamoto Garden to further Guåhan Sustainable Culture’s mission of cultivating ideas and strategies to sustain our environment. We are so grateful to all the sponsors of our first-ever fundraiser and thankful to everyone who was able to join us.
We were especially happy to all who got their hands dirty planting microgreens with us. They should be sprouting now and yearning for lots of sunlight. Now, you just need to water them every two to three days and they should be ready for a dish like the salmon croquettes from Capitol Kitchen, or whatever dish you choose to create. We know you’ll share our love and enjoyment of microgreens once your kale, broccoli, or radish is ready for harvest.
We LOVE all the photos attendees have been sharing on our Instragram (gusustainable) and Facebook (Guåhan Sustainable Culture). Here’s a link to more photos taken by our wonderful volunteer photographer, Sam Ereno!
Because of your support we will be able to expand upon our existing workshops, begin developing our community garden and educational facility, and help bring our island closer to food sovereignty and greater food security as we near our one-year anniversary this coming January.
Thank you for your support!
In addition to our sponsors, we’d like to recognize and extend heartfelt gratitude to our volunteers, sound and entertainment crew, in-kind donors of drinks, raffle prizes, and media publicity. We were especially honored to have Ray Gibson as our emcee who kept the party going!
Thank you to Joey Crisostomo and the Let’s Ride Guam team for the exciting off-road ATV tours and to Hamamoto Gardens for allowing us to use their beautiful venue. Our decorators, Alex, Moñeka and Bruna, did an amazing job with the lights and local flowers. And a special thank you to Guam AutoSpot for lending us a vehicle to transport equipment to and from the event.
