Other things you should know: When I first moved to Maricopa I took the Master Gardner course at MAC. That led to an organic garden on MAC grounds which lead to donating food to Wendy Webb at F.O.R. That lead to a community garden which is still in operation and still provides fresh vegetables to F.O.R. each year. I also have merit badge courses with the Boy Scouts of America here in Maricopa.
