If you belong to a school garden check out our facebook page I have created for school gardens in Pima County to connect with one another. It is Pima County School Gadens. We have over 43 members sharing ideas with one another.

The next deadline for the Native Seeds/SEARCH Community Seed Grant Program is January 2, 2015. This program supports schools, community gardens, seed libraries, and a diversity of other initiatives working to enhance the nutritional, social, economic, or environmental health of our region through gardening projects.

We are currently growing seeds from the last seed grant round at Peter Howell Elementary in Tucson. The application is quick and easy. Seeds are mailed within a week of the grant closing date.
In the Seeds School Garden at Peter Howell Elementary, Tucson, AZ, students grew out a packet of Glass Gem corn in six jumbo grow bags clustered together to increase our supply of this beautiful variety. Next summer we'll plant a bigger plot in a raised bed so more classrooms will have an opportunity to taste this popcorn!
