|GICD’s Annual Plant Sale — supporting our community gardening program

(at the “Asian Garden” next to Jimmy’s Food Store)
April 23rd Our Saviour Community Garden, 1616 N Jim Miller Rd
This year in addition to flowers and bedding plants donated by local growers, will have a large selection of herbs (especially basil, dill, fennel, garlic chives, mints, oregano, and others) and vegetables grown by our community garden volunteers, like peppers and eggplants. We feature the famous Texas Wild tomato (usually these sell out early!).
WE need your votes! Please vote daily and get your family and friends to vote too!
Please help us win money to use at the Center for Growing People (Our Saviour Community Gardens) to build accessible pathways and beds for gardeners with disabilities.
This contest includes 15 community gardens from across the U.S., and the five receiving the most votes will share $20,000 from DeLoach. Winners will be announced in the October/November issue of Organic Gardening.
You can vote once each day from now until August 1, 2011.

Thanks to everyone who has been voting and spreading the word. We need more support! This has been very exciting and with just a few more votes each day we have a very strong chance of wining this much needed grant. In these times money is very difficult to raise, and your simple act of going online to the DeLoach Community Gardens — Vote for Your Favorite Community Garden, website sponsored by DeLoach Vineyards and Organic Gardening Magazine, can make a significant difference in helping us build a more accessible enabling garden.
