    The Youth Garden Project’s 10th Annual Online Auction Fundraiser began at 9 a.m. March 12 and runs through 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 18.

    This is one of the organization’s largest fundraisers of the year and all proceeds support YGP’s community and youth programs.

    Hosted through the online platform “Bidding for Good” at, the goal is to raise more than $15,000. 

    More than 425 items and services from local and regional businesses, artisans and others have been donated to the auction, including guided tours, gift certificates, memberships, dining, lodging, fine art, books, yoga, massage, event registrations, clothing, automotive and more.

    “The auction is a tangible way to save money on items and services you may already spend money on as well as find great deals on unique experiences or one-time events,” said Outreach and Development Coordinator Emily Roberson in an email. “The Youth Garden Project is incredibly grateful for the support of the business community and individual donors that make the auction possible. Starting March 12, join friends, family, neighbors, and folks across the country in bidding for the cause of growing food, kids and community.”
