-Created a new “Kids in Gardens” elementary school education project which provides a science-based curriculum to budget-stressed teachers, and gives students the chance to learn, grow, eat and have fun in gardens. We began with two schools and now more are requesting our help.
-Provided scholarships to more than 60 gardeners, 18 of whom were refugees from their own countries.
-Opened a new garden at the Arizona State School for the Deaf and the Blind on west Speedway.
-Installed new cisterns to harvest water instead of using city water.
-Received a grant from the Audubon Society to plant pollinator-attracting gardens in two of our gardens.
-Were supported by hundreds of hours of work by volunteers from local corporate offices, University of Arizona departments, and other generous individuals!
Because of your generous support, 2019 was great. But we want 2020 to be even better! Here’s our plan: We will increase gardening education for our gardeners and our Kids in Schools. We will improve how we manage our water use. We will learn how best to address climate change.
And we will keep Community Gardens of Tucson strong, growing, and welcoming to anyone who wants to garden. THANK YOU!
