How do I get involved with this program?


Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Sorry about the triple post.  I don't see where I can delete or edit that post after submitting it.

 

Call the Food Bank.  Ask for Brooke.  Inquire about the guidelines for being involved.  It is such a great program.  Everything about the Backyard Garden Programs are wonderful.  There are 2 farms in and around Tucson that they run.  One is Urban Farm, where you can get a plot for free.  Lots of folks garden there and help each other.  Call Chris Loewen if you want to know more about managing a plot.  I am interested in getting a plot there but you need 3 people to maintain it and garden together.  Perhaps you and I could partner if that is of interest.

 

Marana Heritage Farm is another great Community Food Bank resource.  It is in Marana and too far for me to drive to garden there.

This link sends you to the Mentor program info.  Their website is thorough and has all their programs listed.  Enjoy!!

That isn't too far for me. If you know someone else interested in doing it together, let me know. Otherwise I know someone who might be interested. Let's talk IRL.
