Community Agriculture Project
Be resourceful: Grow your own foodBe Resourceful
The City recognizes the role that community agriculture has in promoting sustainable communities by providing locally grown food and building a sense of community. As a result, the City provides land for the development of community agriculture needs that benefit the Flagstaff community.

The City has partnered with a local non-profit organization, TerraBIRDS, to manage and maintain community garden sites located on City owned property. The project serves to educate the community on how to sustainably grow food in Flagstaff’s unique high elevation environment, arid climate and short growing season.

Interested gardeners can contact TerraBIRDS.

The City of Flagstaff’s Community Agriculture efforts began in 2009 with the Bonito Community Garden. Participating gardeners are selected on a first-come-first-serve basis and provided with individual and group plots for a nominal fee to cover water utility costs. Gardeners successfully supplement their food supply by growing various herbs, edible flowers, and a diverse array of vegetables. In addition, educational workshops such as composting, rain water harvesting and seed saving are held to further serve and enrich the gardener’s experience. The City of Flagstaff now supports five community gardens.

By the numbers
In 2013, 114 community gardeners helped to harvest 2,045 pounds of food in 3 community gardens.

By growing their own food, Flagstaff community gardeners saved an estimated $400 each on their grocery bills last summer.
