Partnership w/ Community Food Bank will expand gardening & nutrition education @ ranch!

Proposed Garden Expansion

We’re excited about our new partnership @foodbanktucson through funding from Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona – Punch Woods Endowment.

With their assistance, Campo Urbano will:

  1. Expanded gardening capabilities that will increase produce yield. The additional produce will be used as a teaching aid in programming, to be distributed to low-income individuals and families..
  2. We will expand nutrition education to  youth, families, & adults that participate in programing.
  3. As part of Campo Urbano’s behavioral health programming, the expanded gardens will serve as horticulture therapy. Horticulture therapy uses gardening as a tool to meet behavioral health objectives, such as teamwork, self-care, community, healthy decision-making, and reciprocity.
