The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department and the Greenbelt team are proud to present an inspiring new plan for a small organic farm, education center, and concessions experience in the heart of Phoenix: The Farm at Los Olivos. This new farm-to-table project will help build a healthier community and will create positive impacts for generations, all while reimagining additional activities for a vibrant community park.
Growing food and meeting around the table to enjoy the harvest is the foundation of building community. The Farm at Los Olivos is founded on a long-term partnership between the City of Phoenix and the Greenbelt team. The goal is to create an incredible new amenity on a small portion of this wonderful park. The project is the culmination of generations of agricultural and hospitality knowledge and advocacy. By establishing a two acre organic farm in an urban park with a focus on hospitality and education, we can create a healthier community for generations to come.
The agricultural setting of The Farm at Los Olivos will provide the ideal space for a 2,500-square-foot indoor/outdoor Education Center, which will offer ongoing programs for visitors, schools, senior centers, nearby residents, and more. All programming will be taught on-site in the education facility. In addition to the traditional classroom setting, The Farm at Los Olivos will offer hands-on activities like gardening and cooking classes that encourage learning by doing.
Its as simple as it sounds, the Farm at Los Olivos will have a produce stand where neighbors and visitors to the City Park can see and purchase the wonderful bounty from the on site organic gardens.
