Growing Healthy Communities from the Ground Up
Gather and Grow is an Arizona organization focused on creating spaces for the community to learn about self-sustainability and organic practices. In partnership with ASU School of Sustainability and Roosevelt School District, Gather and Grow helps students to become agripreneurs and families to thrive through garden planning.
Gather and Grow is where our community can come to learn about self-sustainability and organic practices. Located in the heart of The Farm District of Phoenix at Roosevelt School District, students are given the opportunity of gardening to provide kinesthetic and tactile therapy. This therapy is a conduit for social emotional skill development to combat trauma – with science learning and civic engagement as an added benefit.
Each season, Gather and Grow provides out-of-classroom education for hundreds of students both in public and private schools. Gather and Grow has partnered with Phoenix’s sustainability and urban agriculture leaders and teachers to offer hands-on garden experiences for students, providing both the opportunities and facilities to foster an appreciation of sustainability and gardening.
The vision for Gather and Grow is to be a model of sustainability for the South Mountain and Phoenix community. Through farming, gardening, composting, and aquaponics programs, we strive to be a focal point that exemplifies sustainable practices on all scales.
