Contribute to the Garden of Eden
Every Day we are living and thriving in this special vortex of sustainability, community and creativity. Each of us here has a pretty full day, just about every day, of projects and duties we carry out with love, inspiration, and careful attention.
Volunteer your Time, Energy & Special Skills to help and support a local non-profit that you believe in.
We don't use much, so a little bit goes a long way for us. Our community lives on less than $1 per day per person for all our essentials, and the trimmings seem to find their way to us without requiring any money at all.
We also have BIG plans for developing planned sustainable communities across the globe and will gratefully accept and apply your generous monetary donation toward our purpose of sharing sustainable community.
Donate your land, with or without improvements or existing buildings, and we will transform that plot of earth into a productive and sustainable habitat for life.
The Garden of Eden in Kennedale is only the first of what we hope will one day be a network of sustainable communities around the globe.
We are currently in planning stages for developing other plots of land for new sustainable communities.
We can take care of the legalities, executing the transfer of title, establishment of a trust, or whatever avenue seems best for the unique situation.
We are interested in receiving donations of land in all parts of the country and the world and look forward to sharing the reality of sustainable community with as many people as possible.
Automobile or Trailer
We will gladly accept your donation of a car, truck, boat, trailer, RV or other vehicle. We can potentially use it as is, fix it up, or scrap it for parts, art and other creative re-uses.
Mobile or Removable Buildings
Whether it is a mobile home, RV, Shed, or other movable small building, The Garden of Eden is grateful to receive your donation. Delivery would of course be ideal, but we may also be able to arrange to come and collect your donation if necessary, whether it requires deconstruction or simple hitching and hauling.
The Garden of Eden's Feed the People Program
The Garden of Eden periodically goes out to feed the homeless and hungry people of the inner cities of central Texas. On several occasions, we have provided hundreds of meals in a single day to people who were genuinely in need of some nourishment and compassion.
We also provide meals to all those who attend our events regardless of whether or not those individuals have made a donation to our organization.
For every $2 donated to the Garden of Eden's Feed the People Program, we will donate one free meal to someone hungry.
Your money will be directly applied to feeding the hungry, not towards advertising, staff, or any of the other expenses of regular charities.
We keep a running tally of the funds contributed to this program and do events whenever there is sufficient funding to cover our costs and make the event large enough to be worthwhile.
Sizeable donations will result in a special event just to distribute meals provided by that donation.
If you have usable goods that you no longer have a use for yourself, we would love for you to donate those resources to us and we will find a purpose for them.
