Please join us at the Ahwatukee Community Garden on Sundays from 8:00 - 9:00. Please see the Map page for directions. Newcomers are welcome. Help plant and weed and take home some garden produce! Here is what we're planting this month:
Slightly cooler days bring hope that our gardens will start to thrive again after this most brutal summer.
Hugs to all who are dealing with loss right now. Special thoughts for you, and for those who have moved to Oregon and other areas affected by wildfires.
We are gardening on Sundays at 7 a.m. for the rest of this month.
In October we'll switch to 8 a.m.
You'll find a September planting guide below.
If you want to watch a wonderful movie with lots of inspiration and hope for gardens , one of our gardeners reminded me of The Biggest Little Farm. You may have to rent it , but it is worth watching.
The next Zoom meeting is September 22th
at 7 P.M. A little early this month because of a conflict
with the first presidential debate on the final Tuesday of the month.

Large loofahs planted in spring are still growing. They take 110 days to become a dried loofah which most people think originate in the ocean!

I started coming to the Sunday gardening group in the fall of 2013. I've learned a lot and have forged new friendships with other earth lovers. Master Gardeners Linda and Bob have so much knowledge they freely give the rest of us! Bill and I became Master Gardeners as well in 2014 ~ Kelly Athena
