Located near the corner of Indian School Road and Central Avenue, across from NATIVE HEALTH, our Community Garden promotes health and wellness, and allows us to focus on its role of creating healthier families and environment with the community. NATIVE HEALTH uses the garden to educate, mentor and support community gardeners as they plant, maintain and harvest. The community gardens' overall goal is to help families and community members have access to healthier foods through small gardening.
NATIVE HEALTH collaborted with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton's office and PHX Renews to launch the community garden. Arizona-based Native Seeds/SEARCH—a non-profit organization that promotes seed conservation—donated seeds for the first crop of gardeners. Gardeners can participate in ongoing workshops and hands-on learning experiences sponsored by NATIVE HEALTH. At the end of the growing season, NATIVE HEALTH hosts a harvest celebration for gardeners to enjoy healthy foods made from the harvest and to share stories.
Garden beds are available to anyone on a first-come, first-serve basis. To sign up for a garden bed, click here to download an Adobe fillable PDF application.

The gardens and walking path provide opportunities for the community to embrace sustainable food access and cultural knowledge.
