Program Overview

The Artisan Garden Group is a local business that has been operating since 1986 and is comprised of long-time proud New Westminster residents who have supported and volunteered with minor sports associations, youth groups & non-profit organizations in the Royal City & Lower Mainland for over 25 years. 

To extend our community involvement, we have created a unique fundraising program that is environmentally friendly and entirely turn-key so sports leagues, schools, community groups & non-for-profit organizations can raise funds in these financially challenging times.

We wanted to provide an alternative to the standard chocolates, cookies and Pub Nights by providing meaningful and practical landscaping materials that are useful throughout the entire calendar year.

Key elements of the fundraising partnership platform:

No up-front costs / No inventory required
Diverse / functional product portfolio for customers
High yield / earning potential with minimal / no external administration required

With the cost of soil, bags and delivery, your group can potentially make up to $7-$8 per bag on a $12 selling price as long as your group is prepared to do a little work!

Fundraisers are designed for cooperative participation so depending on the event, Artisan will facilitate easy-to-handle bagging stations for your group. Along with a little bagging, all that’s left is sharing the word through social media and word-of-mouth to all of your friends and family.

Here’s a simple formula based on an Artisan truck dropping 10 cubic yards of soil at your location:

      • Group/Team Size: 20
      • Each person sells 10 bags @ $12/bag
      • Net proceeds to Group/Team: Approximately $1,400

Spring Products

All orders will be processed through your own Organization or we can provide an option to use our fundraiser website (at a minimal cost) with total donation amounts to be allocated to your respective Organization at the conclusion of each campaign.

Each Organization involved will set a pick-up location, date and time for which orders will be fulfilled.

We are currently offering the following to be sold as fundraising items: Soil Amender Topsoil (Compost and Organic Matter Blend), Vegetable Blend Topsoil (Compost, Organic Matter and Aged Mushroom Manure) and 40L bags of BC Fruitwood Firewood (Apple & Cherry).
