The Orchard Community Learning Center is a community school and a working farm.  We provide experiential education, resources, and partnerships to promote healthy lifestyles in South Phoenix.  

We provide learning resources to our community using multiple approaches:

  • We provide an experiential gardening curriculum with our partner public schools.
  • We develop relationships with the families who come to The Orchard for night and weekend gardening and exercise classes. 
  • The families create community networks of promotores (community health workers).
In the spring of 2012 we expanded our gardening to provide the following:
  • Community gardens to provide food for our family's tables.
  • Cooperative gardens that provide food to the entire community.
  • Provide a source of income to our participating members.
