New Community Garden, and Fundraiser

A new community garden is coming up in our neighborhood of South Tempe called FIGG (Friends in Gasca Gardens). Fundraising efforts for the garden, near McClintock and Warner, are being spearheaded by Tempe resident and gardening enthusiast Alex Prescott (,

Friday, Jan.7  2:00-close     Rubios (west of Rural, on Guadalupe) is donating 20% to our garden if you mention the Friends in Gasca Gardens (FIGG) or present the attached flier.  I will be there at some point if you'd like to join;


Saturday, Jan 22, 2011   *Rockabilly Chili Cook Off* with a live Rockabilly band, silent auction, chili tasting/cook off, and door prizes included in $20 ticket price; all the proceeds go to the cost of the garden infrastructure. We are still looking for silent auction items so if you have anything or know of anyone who could provide a unique item, we would appreciate the support. This will be a fun evening of food and community so we hope you can join us!

For more information on either of these events and for ticket purchasing contact, see attached documents.  And, if you are interested in becoming a garden member and joining in the fun or digging in the dirt, please contact me.
