The Arivaca Community Garden, a program of Project PPEP Rural Education Institute, is a six acre community garden with a staff of five. It produces as much as 20,000 pounds of fresh certified organic produce a year, which is distributed to people in need by nearby community food banks. Produce from the garden is also distributed through a Community Supported Agriculture program. In addition the garden sponsors a "work and learn" youth intern program, a series of food preservation workshops, satellite gardens at the Arivaca Community Center and the Amado Community Food Bank, and a summer youth scholarship program to Lonesome Oak Equestrian Camp.
