Gardening for Good – Parkway – PLANTING DAY

June 25 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Join us to plant vegetables, herbs and flowers in the eight garden plots for a summer of gardening at Parkway Elementary in Glendale! Come get dirty with us!

SUMMARY: 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 plant a community garden with your family 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 throughout the summer.
