Fund the Farm is a vibrant celebration that benefits Spaces of Opportunity. The 2022 event will feature lively music, local food trucks and a hosted bar amidst the Garden’s beautiful outdoor setting.
Ticket sales and sponsorships provide essential support to Spaces of Opportunity, directly funding the farmers who care for and tend the land. Without their work, Spaces and its numerous programs and events would not be possible.
Spaces of Opportunity is a collaboration of Desert Botanical Garden, Tiger Mountain Foundation, Unlimited Potential, Orchard Community Learning Center and Roosevelt Elementary School District to provide sustainable, fresh produce and farming opportunities to south Phoenix.
Spaces of Opportunity’s mission is to enable all south Phoenix families to have affordable access to healthy food, active living and healthy roots in their cultures. Spaces is engineering a comprehensive, neighborhood-level food system where gardeners, farmers and farm workers are celebrated as artisans. Spaces is transforming a food desert to a food oasis through the coordination of a 10-acre incubator farm, family gardens and an on-site farmers market.
Contact Tomás Johnson, Donor Events Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480.481.8142 for more information and underwriting/sponsorship opportunities. Space is limited.
