In November 2020 the NGAC launched a Giving Tuesday campaign, Build The Garden.
The goal of our campaign was two-fold. We raised $3600 to help the NGAC continue to pursue our ongoing projects and we raised our social media reach 58% by connecting and supporting other garden & arts organizations here in Sacramento.
Though the official campaign ended on December 1st 2020, you may still donate and let your contribution…
CONNECT your neighborhood
NURTURE the garden
INSPIRE our community
Life Begins the day you start a garden.
— Chinese proverb
There is joy in tending to living things, hands in the dirt, head in the sun.
Gardens can increase people’s happiness and health. Creative expression is essential for personal growth and building meaningful relationships. Our community needs a place to celebrate the ethnic diversity of our neighborhoods and the artistic and gardening projects of Natomas residents.
We are the Natomas Garden & Arts Club, established in 2017 with a dream of creating a Natomas Garden & Arts Center. We are a small group of inspired & committed neighbors whose mission is to grow and nurture relationships, grow and nurture connections, and grow and nurture community through gardens and the arts.
So far, the NGAC has helped Natomas by acting as a catalyst. We work with other groups to promote artistic and horticultural endeavors throughout the community. The NGAC has created a pollinator garden at Garden Valley Elementary School, we maintain a plot in the Ninos Community Garden, donating our harvest to local food banks. We also host arts and crafts projects, we have created a public mural, and we participate in and support the Sacramento Tree Foundation, Chalk It Up Sacramento! and other community programs.
HELP SACRAMENTO THRIVE
Our hands are in the dirt and our head is in the sun as we tend to our garden.
The NGAC garden is YOU! Our community of neighbors is the dream – it is the soil where seeds of inspiration are sown. Here we grow together and share interests, building a strong support system for creativity and harvesting the joy of belonging.
Will you help us work toward that dream? Your support now will enable the NGAC to continue planning and implementing larger projects like building the Garden & Arts Center. The Natomas G&A Center will expose more community members to local art and artists, while also providing local artists a platform to present and promote their creations. Here, we will also create programming to share gardening, health, and environmental workshops to share resources and skills to enhance quality of life for our community. Will you share this dream with us?
CONNECT your neighborhood. NURTURE the garden. INSPIRE our community.
Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States, is a movement dedicated to charitable giving to kick off the holiday season.
Your donation today will help the community realize dream projects such as a permanent Garden & Arts Center. Please invest in a thriving Sacramento community through NGAC.
The NGAC began as an informal group of friends and neighbors whose goal was to create a permanent home, a Center, in South Natomas for the enjoyment, presentation and education of gardening & the arts. In 2018 the NGAC incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
Today we are a well-established Club participating in and presenting to the community, garden and arts projects, presentations and demonstrations.
All donations from Giving Tuesday will allow the NGAC to continue funding our Projects and Ongoing Activities such as “Miles for Monarchs” pollinator garden and Natomas Garden and Art Center Gallery Show #1.
