Tucson Village Farm

Farm in metropolitan Tucson leads to plant and personal growth in the Sonoran Desert region.

Tucson Village Farm is a multi-agency effort between UA, Pima County Cooperative Extension and other groups that focuses on children and sustainability, healthy foods, and education. There is a Little Farm and a Big Farm, and the Big Farm is the focus of this story. It is located northeast of the intersection of Roger Road and Campbell Avenue, creating a rural setting in an urban area. The land provides space to grow vegetables and fruit, and provides a meeting area for community gatherings, cooking classes and a ropes course. TVF also holds a weekly market each Tuesday from 4 pm to 6 p m at its location, 2201 East Roger Road.
