Garden Sponsorships Now Available!

With the upcoming planting season quickly approaching, we're looking for sponsors to help with achieving our community vision and we want YOU!

Often finances are a barrier to participation, so we are looking for local businesses that would
be interested in sponsoring one or more garden beds at the KPB community gardens. We are asking for a $100 donation for each sponsored garden bed. In return you will receive a tax donation certificate and we will also provide your preferred signage on each sponsored bed for a year. Those funds will go
towards water, seeds, and soil for our gardeners.

Over the past ten years, [The Keep Phoenix Beautiful]  board had led us through a dramatic transformation that has made us one of the top affiliates in the Keep America Beautiful network, which hosts 640 affiliates across the country. As a local affiliate, we are celebrating our 35th Anniversary this month and have a lot to be thankful for.

Many will recently remember us as the organization who managed the Phx Renews site, a 15-acre community garden at the corner of Central Avenue and Indian School Road called Phoenix Renews. This project was actually a vision of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who charged us with finding temporary uses for vacant lots. While the project was a huge success, it was temporary and as a result, we vacated the land this year [2017].

We continued our garden activities at two new locations, 1822 W. Pierson and Mountain View Park at 7th Avenue and Dunlap. Our Pierson location is only an acre, but with help from our Landscape Architect Valerie Ahyong (who also designed Central & Indian School), we are utilizing every available inch of the property. The owners of the property, Vivo Development, had no immediate plans for the site. As a result, they tore down two undesirable abandoned houses and cleared the site for our use. Now it has an opportunity to bring new life. We will initially have 40 community garden beds as well as educational opportunities, scout projects and compost and recycling projects.
