While Alot of you gardeners out there are having success the sign of
spring here is that the local development committee is threatening to
sell the garden on Sherbrook Street, a really ugly long street dominated
by one story buildings or store fronts onto houses, most of the trees
are dead on Sherbrook Street. It is mostly a concrete jungle type of
place. One tree is doing quite well despite a scale infestation because
its roots can take advantage of the garden soil. These planning geniuses
now have a wonderful idea to pave over the roots of the tree. Duh? They
can do it too, just because they are a 'development corporation" they
funnel all community grant money and make sure that we don't get any
from them. Luckily they are not the only show in town. I envy you guys
who seem to live in areas where everyone is fairly savy about the roll
of community gardens in community development.

Gardening in the Rogue Valley - Options Community Garden 
 

By Joan Jones  
Staff Writer / SouthernOregonNews.com  

Rogue Valley, Oregon - Options of Southern Oregon is creating a
community 
garden in Grants Pass. The garden will provide 32 plots, available to
individuals 
and nonprofit organizations at a nominal annual fee of $25. This fee
would 
cover ongoing expenses such as water and routine maintenance, making the
project 
virtually self-supporting after the initial work is completed. Ten
percent of 
plots would be held as "scholarship" plots. These plots would be
available at 
no charge to individuals who agreed to donate a percentage of their
produce 
to agencies who work with hunger. 


An initial work party was held recently to begin on the project.

"It was fabulous," said Crystal McMalton of Options. "The turn-out was
great. 
About 40 people from the Master Gardeners Association and community
members 
came out to help.

Options received a grant from the Four Way Community Foundation to
provide 
the initial funding to build a community garden for the Grants Pass
area. 

The Options Community Garden was proposed for Options property by
several of 
the staff who recognized that with a minimal investment, the land that
their 
building occupies could be better utilized for the community. 

One purpose of the garden is to educate the community and connect people
with 
their heritage so they learn where food comes from, McMalton said. The
garden 
will also be used to educate youth groups.

People who garden one of the plots at the community garden can either
keep 
the bounty or donate it to a worthy cause.

The concept for a community garden has received support from community 
partners as varied as the Master Gardeners, Josephine County Juvenile
Center, 
Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and the Grower's Market. In addition,
Chandler 
Pipeline Construction donated the installation of an irrigation system.

Another work party will be held March 11. Community members are invited
to 
stop by and check out the gardens.

For those who would like to apply for a plot to garden, applications
will be 
available February 15 by going on-line to 
http://www.optionsonline.org/CommunityGarden.htm or calling 476-2373.

Options for Southern Oregon, Inc., is a non-profit organization
established 
in 1982 to provide psychosocial rehabilitation services for adults with 
long-term mental illness.

Subject: [cg] Gardener's Supply -- worth the effort to send in a
donation
request?

Hi, Folks!

Found the following item in my Fundraising Info - GrantStation Insider
02.15.05 e-mail this morning:

Focus on Gardening, Agriculture, Food, and the Environment
Gardener's Supply Donation Program

The Gardener's Supply Donation Program provides cash or product
donations to
nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. The company focuses support
on
causes related to gardening, sustainable agriculture, food, environment,
and
hunger. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Visit the above
website for more information.

http://www.gardeners.com/gardening/content.asp?copy_id=5152

Has anyone outside of VT actually sent in a donation request (not the
Garden
Crusader awards) and actually gotten anything from Gardener's Supply?

With all the work we're doing with low-income children and adjudicated
youth, we could really use more hand-tools (the kids don't mean to, but
especially the ADHD kids just drop them and don't remember that they did
it), but in my old age, I'm getting very leary of writing out grant
requests
to large companies who often care more about publicity in a certain area
to
boost sales rather than what my particular program is doing. 
Personally, I
don't know how much more noble our program can be (which is good on the
local level) but isn't helping us one iota on the corporate level.

Thanks for the input!
