Learn about Phoenix’s burgeoning urban agriculture industry on this bus tour with stops at three different collaborative sites featuring multiple agriculture initiatives. Learn the story of the Hohokam, the first known farmers of the Phoenix basin and how their heritage is inspiring an urban agriculture revival. Stops include a community school focused on STEM education that is home to several agriculture entrepreneurs, a small certified organic farm that produces specialty vegetables, herbs, flowers, and eggs for local markets, restaurants, and schools and a vacant city lot that has been transformed into a community garden with plots for refugee farmers and agriculture education groups. See firsthand that food does in fact grow (quite well) in the desert!
