Thank you to these wonderful organizations who support Community Gardens of Tucson. We appreciate your support of funding, training, supplies and more!
Thank you Community Foundation for Southern Arizona for giving us a $5,000 grant from their COVID-19 Response Fund! The garden scholarship funds will provide critical support for our work in underserved communities and those at greatest risk from the pandemic by offering more gardeners the opportunity to grow their own fresh, healthy food. We are honored to have CFSA’s support for our work.
With gratitude for a $1,500 grant from the Spicer Foundation. The grant will help provide scholarships to low income individuals so that they can learn gardening techniques to grow their own food and meet the challenges of shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds will also be used to conduct interviews with the gardeners to record and analyze their experiences.
A gift of hands-free water! Thanks to Watershed Management Group for their gift of four “tippy taps” to place in our gardens so our gardeners (and passersby) can wash their hands without touching anything, and save water from pouring out of our taps. Watch how it works here!
The Community Gardens of Tucson wants to gratefully acknowledge and thank the Desert Garden Club of Tucson for its generous matching gift of $2,000 in support of our Kids in Garden Program. This support will provide CGT the critical financial resources necessary to expand the reach and impact of the program by sowing seeds in the hearts of younger gardeners to foster their love for the environment and the communities in which they live! Thank you Desert Garden Club of Tucson!
Wonderful news and much gratitude! Community Gardens of Tucson has received a generous grant from the Hanna Miller and Luke Jacobson Fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona. This grant will help us expand our impact and fulfill our commitment to create and support accessible community gardens for Tucsonans of all ages, abilities, ethnic backgrounds, and economic standing. We’ll also be able to introduce the joy of gardening to more elementary school children by expanding our Kids in Gardens education project. Thank you!
And a special thank you to Jason Tankersley, CEO of the Fairfax Companies/Tanks Green Stuff for providing us compost and financial support for so many years.
