Our vision is to create a stronger, healthier, more vibrant Tucson through our community gardens and partnerships. 

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 17 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 inspire each other through our programs. And we put  Kids in Gardens.

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…This is the heart of community gardening. Join us!
