Calling All Gardeners!
We hope you have already visited the Friendship Evergreen Community Garden. We started work on this endeavor in 2016 and opened the garden for the first season in 2020. The Community Garden is a joint venture with the City of Tempe, Friendship Village, and the Tempe Neighborhood of Evergreen. We have truly multi-generational gardeners who share the joys of gardening together.
This is the start of our 3rd season of gardening. You probably know gardening in central Arizona is opposite other parts of the U.S. We start our fall/winter gardening Oct. 1 with crops loving the slightly cooler temperatures. By April of the next year, we have put in the “summer” crops of other parts of the country and by late May, some of us have put in melons, heat-loving peppers and summer squashes.
Experience gardening with us. We have a Master Gardener as our Garden Coordinator, Cora Strange, who will answer your questions and help you get started. We have monthly Greet, Snack and Volunteer meetings on the 1st Sat. of the month and other planned programs. All of this for the single price of $100 for the year, Oct. 1, 2022 – Aug. 31, 2023. You only need to supply the starter plants, seeds and the labor. Ready to grow soil, water, a secure shed to keep your small tools, and help from your neighbors and Cora is all included!
