By Denise Neath
Thank you to all the volunteers that helped at the Dig It Kingman Community Gardens Children's Garden Chicken and Egg Day!
It would not have been a success without each and every one of you!
It was a huge success and exceeded our expectations with it being Memorial Day Weekend! I have listed the results and some photos.
Your support of the Community Gardens means so much to us.
