The city recognizes the role that community agriculture has in promoting sustainable communities through providing locally grown food and building a strong sense of place. 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, Terra BIRDS, to manage and maintain community garden sites located on City owned property. The project serves to educate the community on how to grow food in Flagstaff's unique high elevation environment, arid climate and short growing season.
Locations for each of the City-sponsored community gardens are listed below:
Bonito Community Garden - 527 W Elm Ave.
Izabel Community Garden - 2300 N Izabel St.
O'Leary Community Garden - 900 S O'Leary St.
In addition to three gardens with rentable plots available to residents, many other demonstration gardens and working community gardens are offered by other organizations and individuals within Flagstaff. Check out the interactive map of all gardens in Flagstaff.
