It was a brisk Saturday morning, February 24th, when three Native Seeds/SEARCH staff traveled from Tucson to Phoenix to offer assistance with weeding and planting seed at the Native Health Traditional and Community Gardens in Phoenix. Access to the spacious farmland in the heart of Phoenix at Indian School and Central was provided by Agave Farms, a sustainable agricultural demonstration site, plant nursery, and community space. The purpose of the garden is to encourage the growth of healthy native foods for clients of Native Health- a non-profit health and wellness provider.
