Let's Grow

Through its Let’s Grow initiative, Phoenix created and maintained community gardens at three housing centers for low-income residents. Working in partnership with Hands On Greater Phoenix, the Valley Permaculture Alliance, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Arizona State University School of Nursing, Phoenix engaged volunteers, including residents of the housing centers, to harvest over 1,400 pounds of fresh produce, which was then provided to over 200 individuals and families living in the centers. In addition, volunteers led educational gardening, cooking and nutrition classes for residents.
