We Root For Each Other

New merch alert for a special cause! We’ve partnered with our friends at Jupmode to offer a new, limited apparel collection called: WE ROOT FOR EACH OTHER.

With artwork hand-drawn by Isabelle Tucker, 577’s program coordinator and studio art instructor, and in collaboration with Samantha Day, 577’s organic garden horticulturist, the message WE ROOT FOR EACH OTHER was inspired by our Community Gardening program and the community gardeners who are such an integral part of 577’s mission.

Open to all, 577 builds a creative, caring community through curiosity and lifelong learning. 577 is a gathering place that inspires meaningful and diverse connections, promoting open-hearted generosity and sharing. Most importantly, 577 is about spreading joy and having fun!

Each year, our gardeners grow and donate hundreds of pounds of organic produce to local food banks ~ truly embodying a sense of community. So far in 2023, the community gardeners have donated almost 1500 pounds of food which has been distributed to the folks at Perrysburg Heights Community Association, PCU Food Pantry, and SAME Café Toledo. The food and landscape gardens also provide a beautiful environment for visitors, an education in organic growing, and an inspiration to future gardeners.  

Proceeds 577 receives from the sale of the WE ROOT FOR EACH OTHER collection will benefit the 577 Growing Fund which supports the Community Garden programs and the beautiful landscape gardens enjoyed by visitors year-round.
