Much Gratitude to Sprouts Farmers Market Employee Rachel Miller!
As part of the Sprouts Farmers Market Employee Wellness program, one team member is selected each month to award a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit of their choice. Thanks to the nomination made by Sprouts employee Rachel Miller, Community Gardens was selected as the November winner to receive the donation. Rachel, who has a deep respect for the environment and gardening said that “Nominating Community Gardens of Tucson to receive the award was a logical choice because of their commitment in helping local families grow fresh and healthy food for their table.”
CGT wants to thank both Rachel and the Sprouts Healthy Community Foundation for their generous support of our program and mission, “to build community gardens where Tucsonans grow food, work and learn together, and nurture well-being in our communities.”
