Dig-It Kingman Community Garden BBQ

Yesterday we attended the Dig-It Kingman Community Garden bbq and I signed up as an occasional monitor.  They are looking for volunteers to be at the garden for two hours to inspect the beds for any signs of pests, watering issues, etc. and to answer the gardeners’ questions.  More info on monitoring at the Dig-It site.

A great idea to keep the food cool:

It was delicious:

I hadn’t been at the garden in a while and I was amazed how much they accomplished:

Support the Kingman community garden “yard” sale

I’m very excited about the Kingman Dig It community garden and I just got a chance to see the property 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!
