The San Diego Community Garden Network is a local non-profit organization whose mission is “to create a healthy community garden movement in the County of San Diego by assisting in the formation of community gardens through education, technical assistance and by linking gardeners.” On May 19, 2012, San Diego Hydroponics & Organics will be participating the SDCGN’s event called “Celebrating Community Gardens from the Ground Up” at the TLC Giving Garden in Tierra Santa. The educational, fun filled day will help raise funds for SDCGN and will feature entertainment, local vendors, gardening workshops, and organic cuisine.
Partnered with the San Diego Master Gardener Association, the San Diego Community Garden Network is actively promoting garden tours, maintaining and increasing awareness of community gardens, and hosting potlucks and events in the San Diego area. The Network develops new community gardens, promotes social and economic justice, and supports eco friendly gardening techniques.
San Diego Hydroponics & Organics is proud to be one of the exhibitors supporting the event “Celebrating Community Gardens from the Ground Up” presented by SDCGN. We will be demonstrating sustainable gardening techniques, educating guests about the benefits of organic gardening and hosting a free raffle. Come by our booth and gain valuable knowledge about ways you can grow your own fruits and veggies this summer in your own backyard!
The May 19th SDCGN event is a great way to meet local farmers and people involved in the local San Diego gardening community. To get involved with this proactive organization, there are many volunteer opportunities available here. There are also items you can donate to help facilitate projects that the Network is working on.
