Garden with Community Gardens of Tucson

Would you like to grow your own organic food? Want to have fun and be part of a growing community? Whether you’re experienced or a complete novice, we have a plot waiting for you!

Community Gardens of Tucson today supports 20 gardens with more than 300 gardeners in diverse communities in neighborhoods across Tucson.  We welcome all who want to grow organic food (and herbs and flowers) through sustainable gardening practices.

  • Garden plots are 3 feet wide and 20 feet long. Some of our gardens have accessible and raised-bed plots.
  • We provide automatic watering, tools and supplies.
  • Each garden has a site coordinator who oversees the garden’s operations, meets with potential gardeners, orients new gardeners, and arranges work parties, educational and social opportunities which nurture and a supportive community to help you.
  • Garden fees are $18 per month per garden plot. Fees are due twice a year, April and October 1st. Plot sharing is a great way to reduce costs and labor and to make a new buddy. Reduced fees and work-exchange opportunities are available for low-income gardeners.

Check out our FAQ for more details about how to join us. You can also learn more about how to garden and harvest with CGT.

We Grow Kids in the Garden

Our Kids in Gardens education program brings elementary school students and their teachers out of their classrooms and into our gardens. These schools have garden spaces but limited resources. Using a science-based garden curriculum, our CGT educator and Master Naturalists provide hands-on classes which let kids:

Learn where food comes from

watering

Experience how to plant and grow it

Discover that getting dirty can be good for you

Understand that THEY can help take care of the Earth

As we adapt to the changes Covid has brought, we are switching gears to create online classes so students can participate through home learning if necessary. We are developing kits that will allow garden education to continue in a social distancing setting, and finding creative solutions to make our outdoor garden spaces accommodating and safe for our garden educators, students, teachers, and volunteers. We look forward to getting back into the gardens with the kids, but we are putting all our efforts into continued education for youth. It is even more important than ever! And so is your support! Please consider donating to Kids in Gardens!
