Learn more about Spaces of Opportunity, a community initiative supported by Desert Botanical Garden. Spaces’ mission is to enable all south Phoenix families to have affordable access to healthy food, active living and healthy roots of 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 into a food oasis by coordinating a 19-acre incubator farm, family gardens and an on-site farmers market. Garden visitors can donate to Spaces of Opportunity by rounding up their total purchase to the nearest dollar and donating the change at the Garden Shop from March 17-23.
