The Delaware Botanic Gardens raised 570 pounds of food on Earth Day this year, all of which was donated to the Food Bank of Delaware.  This is the result of 135 donors who participated in the fundraiser for the garden’s Earth Day Celebration on April 22nd.

Sheryl Swed, DBG Executive Director said, “it was a cold and breezy Earth Day, but our spirits were warmed by the people who shared 570 pounds of food for their neighbors.” The Delaware Botanic Gardens also wants to express that this is an example of one non-profit supporting another for the betterment of the community.
