Programs for Shared Prosperity
Food to Food Composting
Our regenerative composting operation provides farmers around the valley with rich compost that increases crop nutrient density and soil resilience. In the process, we educate youth through our waste diversion project at Lassen School.
Are you a Phoenix farmer that wants high quality compost? We provide healthy product at reasonable rates.
- $7 per 1.5 cubic foot bag
- $5 per 5 gallon bucket (bring your own bucket)
- Ask us about delivery (only on orders of 5 yards or more)
Our Harvest is a cooperative service for Spaces of Opportunity incubator farmers and other local growers. We purchase produce at harvest from growers and then wash, prep, cool, and transport the produce to local markets.
Are you a farmer that wants to save time while taking advantage of the commerce from farmers markets?
Healthy Roots Café
The Healthy Roots Café, or “HRC”, is a youth run, plant based restaurant operated by the Orchard in collaboration with the Roosevelt Elementary School District at Lassen School. Our interns, ages 9-17, work both the “front of the house” and “back of the house” under the guidance of a master vegan chef. All possess a valid Arizona Food Handlers card.
You can find the Healthy Roots Café at Spaces of Opportunity Farmers Market at 1200 W. Vineyard Road Phoenix, AZ 85041
The hours of operation are Saturdays from 7pm-9pm
Do you want to support the Healthy Roots Café?
STEA³M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Agriculture/Activism (A³), and Math. The Orchard works with local schools and community organizations, offering workshops & camps for youth, field work experiences, raised bed garden installation, and on-site garden coaching. They help kids build hands on skills, learn how to work in a team, and develop a closer relationship to their community. We wanted to add our own flavor to traditional education.
Are you interested in STEA³M programs for your organization?
Edible Garden Beds
We’ve custom built and installed dozens of garden beds around the Phoenix Valley. They’re a fun and stylish way of incorporating hyper local food into a space. In addition, it’s a great opportunity to educate youth on the simplicity and beauty of growing food!
Are you ready to get your edible garden bed? You can make hyper local produce accessible to your community, and make it look good.
