Support LGL

The Learning Gardens Lab needs your support to continue our successful efforts in garden-based education for public school kids, college students and community members.


All donations to LGL contribute directly to supporting our program. Examples of supplies purchased with your donation include gardening and educational supplies for low-income students and community members. In the future it is our goal to support other operating expenses including land lease fees and graduate student staffing to run LGL programs.

The LGL operates under the umbrella of the PSU Foundation, an independent tax-exempt organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

  • By mail - please make your check payable to: PSU Foundation with Fund Name and Number noted in the memo section.
