AZSA had a great turn out at SW Veg Fest. We used our new prize wheel to give away sugarcane plants and moringa seeds, which were donated by our amazing volunteer, Zeth. We also had a seed planting activity that turned out to be really fun.
We also successfully  installed our first tower garden two weeks ago at Kyrene Del Norte. Ms. Plata’s 1st grade/kindergarten class helped assemble the tower and plant the first seeds. The plants sprouted as of last week, and Ms. Plata says the class has been really engaged. We hope to find a home for our second tower garden by the end of the month. 
If you’re interested in helping in future projects please join our monthly meeting this Thursday, December 7, at the Tempe Public Library!
