Growing Alliances provides youth professional development training and gardening skills to foster responsibility and independence. Using mankind’s oldest way of bonding and creating strong friendships that carry through life, youth are taught to grow, cook, and share food.

Join us for an evening of classical music, friends, friendly up-bidding, and catering by Chef Arlen of Room for One More.

Studio UFO, Trish Harding and Friends, have created beautiful pieces in a theme After Van Gogh, for the youth, for this exciting live auction. 70% of the proceeds go Growing Alliances, and 30% to the artists.

Garden of Life, Bellingham WA is a movement which supports friendship gardens and events
as a way to build community. Bern Jacqueline was inspired with Trish, to create the theme;
Vincent Van Gogh was a struggling artist, a marginalized individual who suffered depression.
We respect the value put in by the donors, the artists and commit to supporting their effort by
returning 30% of final sales to them.
