Moody Garden Tree Project - which was an Urban & Community
Forest Challenge Grant, administered through the Arizona State Land Department, Forestry Division, provided funding for the
Moody Garden Tree Project. Matching funding was required by this grant. It included funding for a March 1, 2008 Public
Tree Information and Planting Workshop; tree identification signage; and the printing of brochures that describe each of the
forty-two (42) different kinds of trees growing in the Moody Demonstration Garden. The brochure descriptions include
common and botanical names; mature size; description of leaves, bark and flowers; and information such as water requirements,
heat tolerance, etc.
Kiosk Educational Project - through the Yuma Community Foundation Grant
provided funding to build eight educational kiosks in the Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden. The garden is open 24/7 and
residents often visit when no one is available to answer questions. Wooden kiosks have been installed in each of the
eight gardens. They contain information about plants and features of the area of placement. Also a telephone number
to call with suggestions or for answers to questions.
North End Rotary Club, which provided a new cement sidewalk across the
Vegetable garden area – thus making that area handicapped accessible. This grant also provided a stage platform with
podium and seventeen benches for seating in the mini amphitheater area just south of the storage barn.
Their generosity also has allowed us to install a new utility bridge.
