The Orchard Community Learning Center

We create a flourishing local food system by supporting Phoenix growers.

Our communities need more real local food.

You deserve to have access to local food and the knowledge to grow it. The mass-produced commercial food system does a disservice to both farmers and local communities. It leaves farmers financially dependent on chemical fertilizers. It destroys the soil and surrounding ecosystem. It leaves impoverished communities with no easy access to local, whole food.

We’re gathering all of the growers, local farmers, and nature lovers to empower real, local food.

Programs to empower growers and educate communities.

We’re changing the food system in Phoenix. Our programs make it easier to grow good produce and help the community access it.

Healthy Roots Café

Nurturing chefs of the next generation with a student run, locally sourced vegan café.

Food-to-Food Composting
