Community Gardens of Tucson

Our mission is to build community gardens where Tucsonans grow food, work and learn together, and nurture well-being in our communities.

Come Garden With Us!

If you’ve ever wished you could grow your own tasty organic food, Community Gardens of Tucson has a plot for you!  We have 20 gardens located across the city, each with automatic irrigation and tools. And when you garden with us you become a member of a supportive gardening community that is with you every step of the way. Meet new friends and have lots of fun while enjoying your harvest!

We garden organically, practice water conservation and other natural methods to protect our environment. We create a space for sharing knowledge, cultures, and traditions between generations. We offer plot fee assistance and work exchange to those who need help, and we inspire children through our Kids in Gardens education program.

We know we can only be strong when our gardeners are as diverse as the plants we nourish. We share, work, learn and grow together, especially during these challenging times… This is the heart of community gardening. Join us!

“CGT has been the place we run to to escape isolation. It helped me [when my hours were cut] and my wife because she lost her job…Economically, despite COVID we needed food…and we were still getting food from the community gardens.”

Thanks Edward H & Rosamond B Spicer Foundation!

Their funding gave garden scholarships to low income individuals so they could learn how to grow their own food and meet the challenges of shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds also helped with conducting interviews with the gardeners to record and analyze their experiences.

Happy Spring! 

There’s a small chance we could get another freeze in the coming weeks but it is usually safe to plant warm season crops by early March.  We are excited to get the season off to a great start!

Our Vision, Mission and Values

This video highlights our Vision, Mission and Values. Theses will be our guiding principles for this new decade and a changing world. To create a community where everyone is able to grow, share and learn.  Together.

We couldn’t have done it without your support!

Thanks to the generosity  of our supporters on Arizona Gives Day, we raised almost $1,000 in gardener scholarships that will provide urgently needed assistance to individuals and families seeking to grow fresh and healthy food for the table. The collective efforts of our donors ensure that we are able to achieve our mission, deliver on our programs, and make Tucson a better place to live.  Thank you!

P.S.  With the recent extension of the tax filing deadline to May 17th, there’s still time to support Community Gardens of Tucson through the Arizona Tax Charitable Program and make an important contribution to CGT.
