A huge THANK YOU to the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona!

CGT extends its deepest gratitude for the $5,000 We Are One | Somos Uno Resiliency Fund grant we received to support critical staffing needs and additional scholarships for our low income and pandemic – impacted gardeners.

Thank you!

Thank you to The Martin and Hildegard Gluck Foundation!
