Teenagers, Gardening And TigerMountain Foundation

Teenagers and gardening almost seem like the two words don’t mix right? Here at Tiger Mountain Foundation, our local community always comes first. A field-related educational experience creates an opportunity early on for students to learn about the working world. Students can make a connection between school and interesting occupation, stay motivated to graduate and gain the skills for their future career.

South Phoenix Community Events – TigerMountain Foundation

Join TigerMountain Foundation in the Chain of Hearts 2020. This celebration is at The Garden of Tomorrow to honor TigerMountain Foundation. TigerMountain Foundation is a Phoenix non-profit that helps and empowers the growth of the community. 

TigerMountain Foundation

Our mission is simple: To empower communities to better themselves from within. We do this through community garden volunteer work through Co-Op gardens in Phoenix, AZ and landscaping initiatives. In South Phoenix and other challenged communities where we work, there are high rates of incarceration, poor health choices and a low ranking education system. So how do we combat these challenges? Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD). That just means we don’t give a handout, we give the community a hand up. 

Our Purpose

Since 2007, our MISSION is to empower people by building flourishing community gardens on vacant lots in South Phoenix. Additionally, they provide healthy eating and life skills support and workforce development through neighborhood revitalization and beautification.

Our VISION is to act as a change agent for healthy living. This is a healthy community where all citizens can reach their maximum potential. The areas of South Phoenix where TMF gardens are located is a food desert (>1 mile from available fresh produce). This has led to food insecurity and poor food choices which leads to issues of obesity, high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, and diabetes. Gangs are prevalent leading to violence, drugs, and unhealthy life choices. In one of the highest rates of recidivism in the nation, many of our participants are referred from the justice system.

Spaces of Opportunity Garden Phoenix

Here at Tiger Mountain Foundation, we make it our goal to help our local community become great and grow together as one. We work with Spaces of Opportunity Garden Phoenix. That said our community garden helps those who are in need. The TigerMountain Foundation reverses problems through our community gardens and landscaping initiatives. These initiatives teach practical life skills to kids, adults, and seniors, keeping them out of jail, and improving their lives and community.

The Tiger Mountian Foundation empowers the community to help itself as well as bringing our fruits and veggies to local farmer’s markets. Our multi-cultural, inter-generational Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) means we don’t give a handout, we give the community a hand up.

Agriscaping, What is it?

Agriscaping with Tiger Mountain is truly an incredible experience. But first, let’s go over the basics of Agriscaping. Agriscaping is also a foundation of a landscape that creatively and elegantly integrates elements of productive agriculture. So, it does this by means of growing produce (edible fruits, vegetables, and herbs). Also, it could be growing other useful plants to reduce useless consumption, landfill waste, and water usage.

We have been proud to help our communities GROW. TigerMountain’s mission is to improve local food access & sustainability by transforming landscapes into elegant, edible food gardens. These can also be easily managed with the help of online tools, education, and professional support.

Have TigerMountain create a beautiful edible landscape in your yard or workplace open areas. Contact us for ideas and a quote. 602-687-7725

Economic/Community Development

Economic/Community Development– TMF also has a profound impact on the lives of at-risk youth and their families in the community by presenting them a healthy eating and living lifestyle.  We provide tangible value in the community through our intergenerational, multicultural experiential learning sessions which impact food scarcity.  Additionally, we provide gardens with nutritious, chemical-free fruits, and vegetables. TigerMountain Foundation also empowers participants and their families with skills to be valuable employees or have the knowledge to start their own backyard gardens to resolve their food scarcity issues.
