Our valley is home to many EPIC farms and gardens! Come join us as we tour of some of our favorite Urban Farms here in the amazing metropolis in and around Phoenix. For this tour in our series we are visiting…
THE Urban Farm!
Come join Greg for a tour through the front and back yard spaces at The Urban Farm!
The Urban Farm is Phoenix’s first environmental showcase urban farm. The property is designed so that you can experience first-hand some of the many things that you can do to live a more environmentally-friendly life. Greg will give you a guided tour through the property and cover many different aspects of turning an urban property into a food forest. The Urban Farm includes over 70 fruit trees (Greg’s lost track!), rainwater and greywater harvesting, a (primarily) edible landscape, chickens, and two different kinds of solar panels. The ideas are endless and you will leave feeling inspired!
All of our tours of urban farms are free with a requested $10 donation.
We appreciate your continued support so we can continue to make all these educational events happen!
With so many different gardeners, there are many ways to bring beautiful and productive gardens to the desert. We know that you can get some inspiration from these beautiful food forests and bountiful garden beds. We encourage you to visit them all.
NOTE: Our Urban Farm’s Tour Series are outdoor events as we tour these yards, and while the weather is great for our plants this time of year it can be a bit warm for our persons. So please bring water, wear or carry sun protection, and wear comfortable shoes.
(Also: This is likely to be a big event so PLEASE be super-conscious of the neighbors and carpool if you can.)
