La Colonia de Eden Gardens in Solana Beach receives grant

Through its Team Depot Program, The Home Depot® Foundation has awarded $10,000 to La Colonia de Eden Gardens. The donation will be used to establish a community garden. The Home Depot team will join with community members on Thursday, Sept. 13, for a work party starting at 8 a.m. at the site at St. Leo’s in Solana Beach.

“We needed fencing, construction materials for raised garden beds, gardening tools, and supplies in order to start a community garden,“ said Manny Aguilar, president of La Colonia de Eden Gardens, Inc. “Additionally the community garden site was made available by the generosity of St. James and St. Leo’s Catholic Community in collaboration with the City of Solana Beach. We were delighted to receive a $10,000 gift card from the Home Depot Foundation – our volunteers were so happy to have the start- up materials they needed!”

The Home Depot Foundation’s Team Depot Program supports the work that local nonprofit organizations, public schools and other community organizations are doing to improve the physical health of their neighborhoods.

“We are delighted to support local volunteer projects aimed at creating and maintaining stable and healthy communities,” said Kelly Caffarelli, president, The Home Depot Foundation. “La Colonia de Eden Gardens deserves enormous credit for the work it is doing, and we are glad to be part of their efforts.”
