Dear DOT Garden Friends,
The end of the year is fast approaching and we’re amazed, yet again, at how much has grown, changed, and blossomed at the garden. We celebrated another year of workshops and collaboration with the Water Authority. Our annual Plant Sale & Local Garden Fest brought together nearly a thousand people and sent several thousand desert adapted plants to home and school gardens around the city. We bid farewell to our founder and director, Karen Beamish, as she began her journey in international education. Our second CSA year was bountiful and we’re excited to expand next season. All this, along with our plethora of classes for youth and adults, has made this year the best yet.
None of this would be possible without the support of community members like you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping our garden grow. We can’t wait to share new ideas and opportunities for the coming year.
