Members of the faculty and student body planned and built our school garden, transforming a plot of desert land into a working garden artfully secured by a fence partially made out of recycled pallet boards, a beautiful bee-hive shaped gate welded by local artist Dan Miller, and growing beds amended with our own compost, occupied by tomatoes, squash, peppers, peas and more.
The farm expanded in 2016 to include a greenhouse, food forest, and additional growing space. This allows us to divide our bounty into roughly 1/3 for the students and staff that live on campus, 1/3 for sale to support the operation of the space and 1/3 for philanthropic contributions. Most notably we are partnered with Yavapai Food Council's Bountiful Kitchen program.
Students work throughout the week to maintain and harvest the garden. One of the few state certified school gardens in Arizona, our garden provides fresh vegetables and herbs for the school and faculty kitchens.
