Hector is five years old and, he too, already believes he is strong enough to make his community stronger. Last Saturday was the second time he and his family participated in our Gardening for Healthier Communities series.

 

Thanks to donors and supporters, like you, the Lampkin Foundation is not only able to sponsor and create programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities, we are able to get people THINKING about how they can make a positive impact – no matter how old they are.

 

We have a vision for communities that are strong, fully engaged, and resilient. And thanks to community members like Hector, we are reminded that there are no limitations to what we can accomplish when we work together.

 

Thank you to all who have participated, supported, or donated to our Developing Neighborhood Agriculture Initiative thus far. Your kindness and generosity is making a difference. Thank you!

 

Stay tuned for details about the next and last Gardening for Healthier Communities Day in 2018, taking place on June 23rd. We hope to see you there. Thank you!

The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation would like to thank all of our volunteers for their recent contribution of time to the Ontario Arbor Day Celebration on March 10, 2018. This event could not have been a success without their dedication and hard work. Despite the rain, Lampkin Foundation volunteers were able to help plant 165 trees throughout Ontario, California.

We are happy to report more than 40 Ontario residents, students, and community shareholders came to support Inland Empire Resource Conservation District and CIRCLE 2.0‘s larger effort to plant over 1650 trees across California and Ontario’s effort to reduce and limit carbon emissions.

Thanks to volunteers, supporters, and stakeholders, the city of Ontario is well on it’s way to retaining it’s status as a “Tree City USA“. Furthermore, many homes will benefit from the developing shade and carbon emissions are being reduced.

The weather was HOT; but you were COOL about it. Last Saturday, 17 volunteers joined D’Andre Lampkin in Ontario, California for the Gardening for Healthier Communities event. We’re still tallying up the numbers but so far we discovered you were able to provide 13 families with a week worth of fresh organic produce in the 1 hour you spent harvesting in the garden.

Join us Saturday May 13th as he we kick off our first project for the Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) Initiative. We’re gardening for healthier communities. The DNA Initiative combines topical conversations, active working sessions, and farming education to highlight the importance and need for fresh organic produce in highly populated urban areas. The Lampkin Foundation has partnered with Huerta Del Valle, a non-profit, to host “A Day of Farming”. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty with great company, this is the event for you!
