George Brookbank Helped Make the Desert Bloom

All of us at Community Gardens of Tucson, as well as others in the Tucson gardening community, will miss George Brookbank who died last week. He was a gentle man who was patient and understanding, both with plants and with gardeners, from novice to pro. He was always willing to advise why a plant was not doing well and to help improve someone’s gardening skills. He helped make the desert bloom….

Help Keep His Dream Alive on Arizona Gives Day, April 3, 2018

Arizona Gives Day raises awareness of the many nonprofits that weave together to define communities throughout Arizona. Community Gardens of Tucson is proud to be one of those “living and growing” organizations, devoted to providing gardeners places to grow their own food, close to their own home, and shoulder to shoulder with their neighbors and friends.

Please support us on Arizona Gives Day. And, ask your friends and family to consider a donation as well. Every ounce of generosity is appreciated . . . and every dollar helps to further our mission (and George Brookbank’s dream) of building community from the ground up!
