The Green Gala & Auction benefits Seattle Youth Garden Works and is a fun, exciting Seattle Tilth event. Your participation supports our urban farm youth employment program and after a festive evening, you might take home some fantastic auction items!
Seattle Youth Garden Works (SYGW) empowers homeless and underserved youth, ages 16-21, through garden-based education and employment. Youth gain gardening knowledge, business expertise and job readiness skills while earning wages. Through one-on-one mentorship we help youth stabilize their housing, secure future employment, and achieve and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Your support through the GROWING ROOTS Green Gala & Auction will go directly toward helping these youth. SYGW is a program of Seattle Tilth.
