The NGAC received a grant in 2019 to create a pollinator garden at the Garden Valley Elementary School in Sacramento. Working with school administrators, faculty and students, NGAC members transformed an area of the school into a beautiful garden that will attract butterflies and other pollinators.
NINOS COMMUNITY GARDEN
The NGAC obtained a garden plot in the City of Sacramento’s Niños Community Garden in mid-2018. Four NGAC members also have their own garden plots there.
The vast majority of the harvested crops are donated to the River City Food Bank in the name of the Club. In the winter and spring of 2019, the Club donated 116 pounds of beets, carrots, peas, radishes, lettuce, turnips, leeks and onions.
For the summer of 2019, the Club donated over 700 pounds of zucchini, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, eggplant and a few other crops.
Bell Beans were planted in the plot this winter (2019-20). The plants will be chopped up and incorporated into the soil to add both organic matter and nitrogen.
The club has also participated in the garden cleanup days in 2019 and 2020.
