Each month, we plan a Hive Drive to highlight a partner of ours and to provide another opportunity for our families to serve together.This month our featured partner is Gardeneers, an organization dedicated to connecting students with healthy food through experiential, garden-based learning. Gardeneers currently sustains 20 school gardens, working with more than 1,000 students throughout Chicago.

We need your help to collect supplies needed to beautify and maintain Gardeneers’ school gardens:
+ Outdoor paint, preferably matte, bright colors
+ Paint brushes
+ Bonus: Hand tools, trowels and hand racks (both adult and kids sizes)
