Auction for the Earth
Our Earth Month auction is about experiences, not things. Each curated adventure is unique to Sustainability Matters, our friends, and our supporters. None is available commercially. We think this captures the spirit of our fledgling nonprofit: anchored in our community, and always excited to share knowledge and adventure.
We hope you'll bid generously on the priceless experiences in this, Sustainability Matters' first ever auction. Celebrate your gradual emergence from the pandemic bubble, and join friends to bid on some fun! Each of these adventures will be private to the winning bidder's group, with timing arranged to the mutual convenience of the winning bidder and the donor. Once the auction has concluded, we'll get winners and donors in touch directly.
Funds raised through Auction for the Earth will nourish our newest program, Backyard Food Bank: Grow Your Own. Backyard Food Bank mentors food insecure families through their first season of growing their own vegetables, giving parents and children the lifelong skills, resources, and peer support to produce healthy food in their own backyards. If you'd like to donate directly to the Backyard Food Bank program, here's the link:
