Sakata Seed America is increasing our efforts to improve the local community and the betterment of lives. In the past couple of months alone, Sakata has used our resources to make multiple donations to local organizations and events that support the Salinas Valley and extending regions.

Salinas Valley - Sakata sponsored the second annual Paws for Pets event in Salinas this April. Paws for Pets raises funds for City of Salinas Animal Services and local shelter pets by selling plant material at the Hitchcock Road shelter location every April. This year was Sakata’s second year participating, and Sakata was the number one contributor of plant material for the successful event, which raised $8,000 for City of Salinas Animal Services.

We also donated plant material to the Salinas Valley Fair. A long-standing tradition, fair volunteers loaded up trucks full of Sakata flowers to landscape the fairgrounds for the upcoming Salinas Valley Fair. In addition to the floral donation, Sakata purchased three animals at the fair auction, supporting FFA students in both Paso Robles and King City:  two hogs and one lamb.

Gilroy – Sakata recently donated four large SunPatiens® containers to the Spring Fling fundraiser for Leadership Gilroy. Leadership Gilroy is a program founded in 1998 by the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce as an extensive nine-month Community Leadership Program that enforces skills such as teambuilding, communications, ethics, diversity, change management, negotiation and conflict resolution to create local leaders in the community and community industries like agriculture, government and health and human services. The $600 raised by the SunPatiens containers will go to their class scholarship program.

Morgan Hill – Sakata is making strides to improve the local community surrounding our headquarters in Morgan Hill. Recently, 15 Sakata employees donated their time to upgrading and planting drought-resistant plants in the Morgan Hill community. “This planting signifies our commitment not only to bettering our community, but to continuing to spread the message of saving water and being more conscious of our water usage,” states Alicia Bush, head of Sakata’s TeamUp committee, which was developed to spread the scope and frequency of charitable contributions and volunteerism by Sakata Seed America. Sakata was honored for our contribution to the community at the Morgan Hill City Meeting on May 18th.
