Gardening for Good – Parkway – ADOPT A WEEK

June 26

Pick a week for your family to tend the vegetables, herbs and flowers in the eight garden plots this summer at Parkway Elementary in Glendale! Come get dirty with us!

As part of our Summer Gardening for Good Series, Kids Impact Community will have eight garden plots at Parkway Elementary School in Glendale. Families will have the opportunity to get dirty, tend and explore the garden, and harvest food to donate to our local partners at Kinship Community Food Center. Green thumbs are not required. If you should have questions or need assistance during your week, we will provide that!

PURPOSE: Take responsibility for and nurture a community garden with your family for one week (Monday through Sunday) this summer at Parkway Elementary School.

IMPACT: In addition to the immediate benefits of gardening with family, the Kinship Community Food Center will receive harvested crop (food and flower) donations from our garden.

ACTIVITIES: All summer, each family will take ONE WEEK (Monday through Sunday) to weed and tend the garden. In late September, we will invite the families to come back to the garden to harvest the crops. During your family’s assigned week, we ask you stop by at least three times to tend the garden. Once our participating families have registered, we will communicate details about the garden (where to find water, who to contact for help, etc).
