Indigenous Wellness Garden

NATIVE HEALTH is partnering with KeepPhoenixBeautiful (KPB) and Agave Farms for its nationally acclaimed urban Indian community gardens.

The NATIVE HEALTH Indigenous Wellness Gardens are a nationally acclaimed urban Indian community garden, and provides tools and resources for garden novices and experts alike.  The two gardens provided community members over 1500 pounds of produce, including Apache giant squash, Diné blue corn, Tohono Oʼodham melons, squash variety, and much more! Over 40 families are active in community work days, workshops, and monthly cleanups.
