Verde Thumbs Garden Club

Verde Thumbs Garden Club

Our Mission:

Teaching and sharing sustainable techniques for growing vegetables and fruit.

Our Vision:

To develop a community of fellow gardeners who have the knowledge to grow, harvest and preserve their own food using both age old information and the latest, factual, organic and sustainable methods. Then to see these gardeners share their knowledge with children, neighbors and friends throughout their communities.

We meet on the third Saturday each month from 10am-Noon in the large meeting room at the Cottonwood Public Library, 100 6th Street, Cottonwood, AZ 86326.
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

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. To find out more about our meetings email Janice Montgomery
