Verde Thumbs Garden Club

Verde Thumbs Garden Club
Teaching and sharing sustainable techniques for growing vegetables, fruit and flowers.

The Verde Thumbs Garden Club works to develop a community of fellow gardeners who have the knowledge to grow, harvest and preserve their own food using age old information and the latest, factual, organic and sustainable methods. Seeing these gardeners share their knowledge with children, neighbors and friends throughout their communities, completes our vision.

Some Current Projects:
  • Monthly meetings featuring timely information and sharing garden knowledge
  • Regional seed library
  • Seed saving classes
  • Bulk purchase of garden supplies
  • The tomato project – Growing and developing hardy heirloom tomato plants and saving seeds
  • Annual seed exchange
  • Community education and outreach
  • Garden education at regional festivals
  • Sharing garden resources
  • Volunteering to support home, school and community gardens

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at Pine Shadows Mobile Home Park, 2050 W. Highway 89A, Cottonwood, at 6:00 pm for socializing and 6:30 for the meeting.

The Verde Thumbs brings together regional gardening experts, gardeners new to our region and novices just starting out. Even seasoned gardeners learn much from participant on how to effectively garden in our unique and challenging environment. All participants strive to use methods that respect the environment, conserve water and resources, and are pesticide and chemical free.

The grand opening of the Seed Library was September 12, 2015.

The Seed Library is open for three months for fall/winter gardens and again starting in February for three months for spring/summer gardens. During those periods it is open every Saturday from 11 am – 1 pm. (Click on thumbnail to see full-size photos.)
