Sponsorship Opportunities

Whether you Sponsor the Farm for a Day or become an Event Sponsor, you gain valuable exposure for your business or foundation as you provide important support to Lynchburg Grows.

Sponsor the Farm for a Day

The total cost of running the farm for one day is approximately $1,000. When you sponsor the farm for a day, we'll share your logo and message to our 3,100+ followers on Facebook and 1,700+ on Instagram. Your day sponsorship is especially valuable to us, too, because your unrestricted funds support daily operations (not usually possible with grant funding).

If you are interested in sponsoring the farm for a day at the $1,000. level, please contact Executive Director Shelley Blades at shelley@lynchburggrows.org. Alternatively, you can fill in the Sponsorship form below and use the message field if you would like your sponsorship to honor someone on a certain date, plus any other information you would like us to know.

Sponsor an Event

We have two major events each year: The Salad Days in late spring, and A Greenhouse Dinner in the fall. Sponsors of these events get free tickets, plus inclusion in our marketing, and special recognition at the events. Our 2018 events are over, but if you are interested in becoming an event sponsor for 2019, please contact shelley@lynchburggrows.org.

The Salad Days

Event Date: May 24, 2018

This event celebrates spring with a picnic dinner on the lawn, live music, yard game contests, an outdoor bar, and a silent auction of local art. Guests create their own masterpieces at an all-you-can-eat salad bar in the greenhouse. Salad ingredients are from Lynchburg Grows and other local farms, while toppings and dressings are provided by local restaurants. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to our first Salad Days event last year, we’re expanding our ticket capacity to 150 for this event in 2018.

Event time: 6 to 9pm
Tickets: $35/person
$5 for kids 10 and under
