Thursday 1/25/18 High Desert Gardening Club meeting

I’m so happy that we can have the meeting at the Dolan Springs Community Council Hall — FINALLY a real meeting place!  The High Desert Gardening Club hasn’t had a meeting since 6/16, primarily because we didn’t have a space to meet and of course I’ve been very busy too, just finished a new winter greenhouse.

Thursday 1/25/18 from 2 to 4 pm

Please RSVP
so we’ll have door prizes for everybody

    Protect your plants without spending a fortune.
  • Trade seeds and plants.
    Share your experiences with other local gardeners.
    Make new friends.
  • Not a gardener or too busy?

         Help other gardeners for a share of the harvest.

Support the Dig It Kingman Community Gardens yard sale

I just got a chance to see the new community gardens on Saturday.   One acre adjoining Cecil Davis park off Harrison (Hualapai Mountain Rd.) was recently donated to the garden and they are moving along at lightening speed.   Fencing is almost finished and they got a water meter for just under $3,000.  Is that crazy or what?  I heard that True Value supports the garden and I’ve been making a point of shopping there.

Dig It Kingman Community Gardens will be holding a Benefit Yard Sale on Friday, May29 starting at 7:00am. It will be held at the Kingman Community Gardens site on the corner of Lillie Avenue & Harrison Street, next to Cecil Davis Park (see attached flyer).

Donated items can be dropped off on Thursday, 5/28 between 3-7pm. Call Mike Roundy for details at 928-715-1165.

All proceeds will be used to purchase irrigation and garden tools. Items not sold will be donated to local charity.

I haven’t been able to help at the garden at all as we’re so behind schedule with our own new garden construction, but I’ll drive to Kingman on Thursday to drop of stuff for them to sell.

Please contact me If you’re in the Meadview area and you have items to donate — I’ll pick them up on Wednesday or you can drop them off at Canyon’s End on Wednesday between 2 – 4 pm while we have our gardening club meeting in the front room.

The sale is on Friday, so if you’re in Kingman, check it out!

  I recently visited Meadview Realtor Jan’s permaculture garden, although she just decided to plant trees, bushes and perennials and to then interplant the annual veggies because it makes sense.  This is the way to grow food in the desert.  Click on the pictures for larger images:Continue Reading
