Help Finish the Solar Pavilion in our Learning Garden

For years we’ve envisioned having a pavilion in our Learning Garden to be the focal point of our youth education and community programs. Last year we began to make that a reality as we partnered with Emmet O’Brien Technical High School to build the pavilion and put solar panels on the roof! The project is in the final stages, and we need your help to get it finished.  Help us finish the solar pavilion and take the next step in making our Learning Garden a truly special place and key resource to serve the community.

With your help, we can put the finishing touches on our pavilion project!

Funding from this campaign will be used for the final stages of construction of our 20’x32′ pavilion:

  • Connect the solar panels and reduce our carbon footprint
  • Install lights and electric outlets
  • Pour concrete for the bathroom floors
  • Install plumbing for two bathrooms and sinks
  • Paint the interior and exterior
  • Lay a brick border and make a beautiful, welcoming space!

When completed, the pavilion will serve the hundreds of school children who come to the farm on field trips, our summer camp programs for ages 5-13, our after-school and home-school programs, as well as our adult workshops, farmer trainings and community gatherings. Help us take the next step in making our Learning Garden a truly special place and a key resource to serve the community. Giving at Any Level counts, thank you for making it happen!

​The best part? Sustainable CT will match every dollar donated up to $15,000! That’s a big deal!
