Las Milpitas:

Community Garden and Outdoor Classroom

Established interactive school garden and outdoor learning-space used by 250 public school students. Taught low-water urban farming practices and contemporary food issues. Created regular after school gardening program and student vegetable CSA.

Partnered with Las Milpitas and The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona as well as with City High


As an Urban Farming instructor I worked over the course of three years to develop a consistent partnership between the students of City High and the growing community farm of Las Milpitas. Our goal was to start a small group of young farmers and build a small CSA for the students and teachers of City High School. 


Our students were asked to be consultants for the Joel Valdez Main Library's new Seed Library. This is a student's promotion for the new community resource.
