Fall 2014 Adopt a Bed Program is open for sign up!

Garden overview

Garden enthusiasts, families, friends, school service groups and our community . . . you are all invited to be our partner this spring for our 5th season of the Adopt-a-Bed Program. It works like this: We work with you to select a bed, prepare the soil, plant seedlings (we provide plants/seeds), weed, harvest, deliver and watch your garden grow with you throughout the fall season. Your donation of $100 per bed (tax deductible) gives you for a 10’ x 10’ area with an Adoption Sign identifying your special bed.

We have a reverse tithe system where 90% of your harvest will be delivered to our local outreach missions and 10% you may keep for yourselves. All adoptees are invited to participate in a Veggie Swap with other adoptees to share our bounty together later this fall. We will be planting vegetables such as broccoli, lettuce, onions, garlic, beets, carrots, pumpkin, radishes in addition to flowers and herbs. Soil and bed prep is taking place NOW – every Saturday morning starting in September (check website calendar) and planting begins mid-late September and well into October.

Contact us through gtggvolunteers@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting a bed this fall. Judy Walden, our Volunteer Coordinator will work with you to secure your bed, customize your sign, and coordinate when you will plant between September 13 and October 25. If you can’t plant, we have plenty of volunteers who will be happy to dig in the dirt for you! We have a limited number of beds so it’s first-come-first-served. Checks are payable to Living Streams Church, note Growing Together in memo. Please mail to: Annie Mittelstaedt, 6816 N. 2nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85012.

Thank you for being part of the garden community and helping us nurture our mission to serve others! See you soon!
