  • Description

    Description

    We are a budding 501c3 nonprofit organization working on sustainability projects, art, organic gardening, homesteading, permaculture, community building, lgbtq activism, women's activism, refugee understanding and awareness, temporary shelter programs, workshops, and kids camps! We also intend to eventually create a sustainable food forest in the high mountain valley of Southern Arizona

    We are located on the foothills of the Chiricahua mountains, near Bisbee Arizona. Our facilities include a tropical greenhouse with bananas, oranges, lemons, limes, mangos, and more! We are currently working on building outdoor hoophouses and setting up for monthly farmers markets on our land, community events, and festivals.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Please send a message stating when you would like to volunteer, and write a few sentences about your labor/work experience.
