"I've been growing in buckets for years and in the past week have run into these terms for the first time, cylinder gardening and bucket gardening. Too funny."

Bucket Garden Installation

Hey Valley Permies! If you are not busy this Friday come on down to ASU's community garden (on the east campus) and help install a new type of garden system. We are anxious to see how it does compared to the more conventional plots out there.  See the face book event here but the fun starts at 7am this Friday. https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=103328656447617See More

Free seeds!!!

Hey there, Stover Seed company donated 4 giant boxes of seeds to ASU's community garden but we simply cannot use them all. We have dozens of varieties from tomatoes to squash to radish. I have them safely stored both at the Tempe and Polytechnic campuses so let me know which location would be more convenient for you to meet up at and come take some seeds for your garden project! You can have as many as you want!!! =) Jehnifer.Niklas@asu.edu(480)…See More

About Me:
I recently graduated from ASU in Wildlife Biology and Restoration. I now find myself working in sustainability at this same University. It's an exciting time and an exciting field to be in. There are times when I lament the fact that I am not in the field somewhere studying endangered species, but I feel this is the right place for me to be in at this time.

GROUND BREAKING!

This is an extremely important day for Poly Gardens out at the ASU Polytechnic campus. =) We broke ground! (If you don't count the removal of the swing set first which happened awhile ago.) This lot transformation has been in the works for a year and we finally commenced the initial leveling. Next comes blue staking, then my guys will trench and install all the major irrigation plumbing necessary for this community garden to be a success! We will host eight 20' x 25' plots for staff, students… Continue

Good to see you Friday and make a switch. The group of boys in Queen Creek is Canyon State Academy, 20061 E. Rittenhouse Rd., QC. Phone (480) 987-9700. Don't know if they could chaperone some boys to the community garden for "community service." Another option might be the Juvenile Probation work/service program that takes a van of kids some afternoons. I know one stint is shoveling out a horse barn (probably Sheriff or Police or something). This might be a stretch, but you guys might be a good community service connection for them. I have a number for Probation at (602) 506-2504, but they would have to point you to the person in charge of the juvenile work/service program. I can't remember the title of it. Good luck. Let me know if something develops.

Jennifer:
I have both coffee grounds (some tea leaves) from local coffee houses, and about 6 bags of pecan leaves, to help build up compost. Not construction materials, but I come to Mesa about once a week, to the 60 and Mesa Drive, and if you are near there I could deliver some for you. Interested?
