The Growing Grant
Bringing Landscaping to Your Project in a Meaningful Way
The Growing Grant is our way of giving back to our community in 2020. It is available for non-profit organizations with projects that focus on education and/or food systems and security. This grant includes labor, plants, and material for landscaping an outdoor space; it is NOT a monetary donation. Although we recognize that this program is not ideal for everyone’s needs, we feel this is how we can make the most impact. For consideration, please apply by August 31, 2020.
PAST COMMUNITY PROJECTS & EVENTS
Growing Grant 2019: Tucker Maxon School/Goat Park
“Dennis’ 7 Dees is due tremendous credit for making the idea a reality by generously donating the labor and expertise to bring the final project to fruition—not only were they technically proficient and able to supply the necessary fruition labor, but also the creativity and resourcefulness provided by their staff was astounding, and enabled the project to exceed all expectations. The craftsmanship and ingenuity (and good cheer) exhibited by their crew was without equal.” —Tobin Bottman, S.E. Pardee St (The Bee Newspaper)
Seed Today for Roots Tomorrow: A Farm-to- Table Garden Party
Over 100 guests and sponsors gathered at this inaugural event to help build and fund a new endeavor at Human Solutions—their new children’s Garden Program to help homeless and low-income families in Portland.
Planet Day of Service
We take pride in donating time and skilled labor to organizations in need for annual days of service. One year, we donated the installation of a drip irrigation system to Zenger Farms, an educational working farm that teaches children about growing sustainably. We’ve also worked with Human Solutions to revamp their Day Break Shelter to give the children a safer place to play.
Charity Golf Tournament
It is the community in which we rely on for our success, and we strive to help our neighbors in need in meaningful ways. Human Solutions has continuously made this possible for us. With the help of the community, we were able to raise over $107,000 at this charity golf event—the most in the tournament’s history!
