Berryvale Grocery and the Siskiyou Land Trust have scheduled a fund-raising event to benefit the Sisson Garden Greenway Campaign to be held in front of Berryvale in Mount Shasta this Friday, June 14 from 3 to 7 p.m.

The goal of the Sisson Garden Greenway Campaign is to purchase the 2.89 acres across from Sisson School where the SLT office sits today. It includes the building and property under the Jefferson Public Radio tower.

The project will benefit children to use the property as an outdoor garden, science and life experience. It will allow the community to have access to a community garden. It will provide pathways and trails for walking and biking and link to the Rotary Trail in Sisson Meadow.

Berryvale Grocery is challenging the community to make donations to the campaign by offering to match donations dollar-for-dollar (up to $5,000) during the event Friday.

In addition, thanks to a generous matching donation from an anonymous community member, your donation could be quadrupled. Here’s the math – you donate $20, Berryvale donates $20, and the anonymous donor matches the combined $40 for an $80 total donation.

“One of our guiding principles includes nurturing the community in which we live and work,” said Berryvale’s Sean Doyle. “Being able to participate alongside our customers in supporting such a visionary project is an incredible opportunity. We have tremendous respect and appreciation for the SLT and the many other local groups and volunteers that collectively make Mount Shasta such a delightful place to call home.”

Siskiyou Land Trust is a 501(c)3 non profit organization “dedicated to working to preserve the unique and beautiful land in Siskiyou County for our children and generations to come.”
