Here's how to help expand community gardening

Here’s an opportunity for all of us to help promote the work of community gardening in the region as well as advance the efforts of Wenatchee Valley College.  

Alison Detjens and Joan Quazi of WVC have applied for a Seeds of Change Grant  that would enhance and expand the college’s outreach program to the community and local schools. As a community, we can help by voting every day on seedsofchange.com web site to improve the chances of getting a $10,000 grant. 

Detjens, the  school’s greenhouse and garden manager, said most of the produce they grow is donated to local hunger programs.The college program helps schools plan, build and learn from school gardens. They host field trips to the hydroponics greenhouse.

Seeds of Change, an organic seed company, will be giving out a number of grants and is having a public vote to test community support. To support the effort, go to seedsofchangegrant.com, search for the Wenatchee Valley College application and vote. The contest ends on April 21.

Detjens also told me there’s going to be a community Earth Day celebration on campus on April 22, with garden tours, kayaking in the fountain, food, poetry reading and other events.
