New to the Gardening Area but did some when younger. Grocery store Fruits greens and vegetables scare me. Starting to help make people in my area (A campground) aware of ways to grow their own in confined spaces with limited space available.

The Auburn Middle School is so grateful for the $300.00 grant awarded to us this spring. The grant allowed us to purchase much needed loam and organic compost to fill newly constructed beds last summer. We were able to purchase some blueberry and raspberry plants for the school. We also bought some lumbar to build a new potato bin. Our tech teacher and a couple students decided to take this little project on! They did a great job...and it's in full swing! Instead of sowing carrots into the ground this year, we decided to buy flower boxes, fill them with soil, and plant the seeds. We have growth, I'll have to let you know how it works. And lastly, all the plants you see in the pictures are grown from seeds bought with the grant money!! The kids were very proud of their work this year. We started our seeds a little bit later then usual because to much of our produce was coming in during the summer time and less in the Fall when students are in school. My hope over the next few weeks is to start the remaining seeds and extend our production further into the growing season!

The VA San Diego Medical Center used the $300.00 grant to purchase an "OGROW" Greenhouse and additional food waste bins for the cafeteria coffee grounds and the VA Organic Farmers' Market green waste. The $100.00 gift card from the "Gardener's Supply Company was used to purchase 3 Seed Starter kits for the Greenhouse, 2 water level indicators, 24 wooden markers for identification of plantings, Easy Grow fertilizer, 9 quarts of germinating mix,, and Biofertilizer for seedlings. The Garden Planner subscription was used to design an "American Flag" garden with red, white, and blue vegetables and flowers. The Garden team is planning on having the design ready for harvesting and blooming on Veterans Day 2014. The American Flag Garden will be located on the hill adjacent to Interstate 5 for all travelers to see. The Composting area is producing 6 cubic yards of compost every 3 weeks. Currently, the compost is being used in landscape projects and the Wellness Garden.

Lyman Moore has recently used the KGI grant money to purchase and assemble materials for a hoop house! Students measured and planned for hoop house placement, pounded rebar into the ground for stability of hoops, glue pvc together for arches, and set arches on rebar. Now we are ready for our next seed starting season to cover the hoops with 6mil plastic and get an early start on our spring growing season. Thank you KGI!

We wrapped up a successful Spring at the Ecology School with nearly 2,000 students participating in our residential programs and learning about food systems in our Dining Hall through skits and songs like our parody “Compost Baby”. From late April through the close of the season in June, students were able to harvest produce weekly for use in the dining hall. Of the residential students nearly ¼ (457) participated in garden based lessons that taught about all aspects of growing food. Through the work of staff and students the stage has been set for a great September garden when our school programs kick back in. In the meantime we are excited to have harvests to donate this summer, beginning at the end of June, to our local food pantry which provides meals to nearly 70 people twice a week. It is our goal to provide at least 100 pounds of produce during the course of the summer.

Healing Gardens Cooperative was really happy to receive the funding from Kitchen Gardens International. Juliet Yelverton is passionate about bringing good health to the community and has herself found the gardens that have been cooperatively created, an enormous resource. Despite her very busy life, running Healing Waters Sanctuary and working with people suffering from trauma, she enjoys every available moment in the gardens, growing for the community. It is her safety valve from the intense work and focus that she gives her clients. Juliet says that the grant funded extra tools for the gardens and also helped with the sign that beckons people to the Healing Gardens. Recently we had an Open Day and people were able to easily find us thanks to the sign. It resulted in new members joining. We have a growing number of members of the Healing Gardens who are recovering from trauma and serious health issues and are very happy from the support that Kitchen Gardens International have given us, which has supported our work here. It has allowed us to continue to build our presence in the community. We offer relaxation, connection with nature and recently we have launched a 'pick your own' project where people can help themselves weekly for a very small investment.
