November 27, 2018 is Giving Tuesday, a day of giving which now celebrates its 7th year. It’s a day to join with people all over the world to reflect on what really matters in life … and to take action to make sure good work that has a positive impact on your local community continues to thrive. Community Gardens of Tucson has been about the business of doing just that, growing lasting friendships and healthy, local food, for 29 years. George Brookbank, who passed away in March of this year, founded CGT in 1989 and worked side-by-side with Tucsonans to teach and learn how to grow all types of plants that nourish one’s body and soul. His work continues today through people like you who know the value of tending a garden in your own community.
This year we’ve set a #GivingTuesday goal of raising $2,500 for the George Brookbank Scholarship Fund to honor the man who helped so many
Just this past year, your donations have helped give a “hand up” to 70 gardeners who needed assistance with their plot fees, 15 of whom were refugees from their own countries. Will you help us grow our scholarship fund so that no gardener is ever without a place to be with people, share their knowledge, and grow good, fresh and local food for their family?
Thank you for giving to CGT this #GivingTuesday! Your support is greatly valued and will be put to good use right here in your own backyard. To make a donation towards our goal, please make your contribution using the form below.
