Northeastern Arizona Homeschoolers Community Garden
Northeastern Arizona Homeschoolers host the opportunity to work together as homeschoolers on our own area of the White Mountain Community Garden, located in Show Low, Arizona.
NAZH believes that homeschooling families can benefit from 4 Pillars of school gardening:
1- Environmental Stewardship
2- Community & Social Development
3- A Healthy Lifestyle
4- Preparedness & Self-Sustaining Life Skills
COST TO PARTICPATE
Each year in March we will provide the opportunity for NAZH homeschooling families to join our group area. The cost of the rented space is $35/number of homeschooling families participating. Additionally, the WMCG requires one adult from each family to have an official name badge for entrance to the working garden. Fee's can be paid through the PayPal to the right of this page. Questions contact NAZH at email@example.com.
LOGISTICS OR PARTICIPATION
We participate in the local WMCG HEALP program. Essentially we volunteer 2 hours a week and assist in gardening essentials from beginning to end (plowing rows, putting up raised beds, planting seeds, weeding, harvesting and more). We as a group work under a team lead from the WMCG that gives assignments and helps us learn what to do.
From WMCG: HEALP: The Healthy Eating and Living Participation program is specifically designed for individuals who wish to learn more about gardening and provide labor to the community garden. HEALP members can participate in all the community garden activities and are rewarded for their service. On scheduled days and times, HEALP participants share in the work necessary to prepare, plant, water, weed and harvest at the garden. For each hour worked (and logged in) on assigned projects in the WMCG, participants will be entitled to receive a share in the produce harvested. HEALP participants are required to work at least two+ hours per week as a part of their participation requirements.
LOCATION OF GARDEN
The garden is located west of the Navajo County Health Department, and south of the AYSO soccer fields (past the parking lot that sits west of 9th place, north of the Deuce of Clubs). Details and additional map, here: http://www.wmcgarden.org/map.php.
