About March2Gether Phoenix

Building a tribe starts with a shelter of comfort and security. When others join you or you join others, deciding how to treat each other and what agreements are they, are crucial. Next, what is your contribution to the tribe? building fire, cooking, collecting food, wood, water, etc? Nowadays we have more options to choose from, it can be anything closest to your desires. What and how do you want to contribute? Lets talk about getting paid doing what we love. Finally, our body. Let’s make sure we eat, rest, and care for our body. These are the four topics we talk about on how to live better together. March2gether Phoenix is a mastermind think tank group based in Phoenix, Arizona. We are a collection of great minds. Our mission is to share, create, and execute ideas to live better together.

About 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 hand out, we give the community a hand up.

What is Agri-Landscape?

Agri-Landscape with Tiger Mountain is truly an incredible experience. But first let’s go over the basics of Agri-Landscape. Agri-Landscape is a foundation of a landscape that creatively and elegantly integrates elements of productive agriculture. 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 also can 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.

We Cultivate Better Communities – Through Co-Op Gardens in Phoenix, AZ

Our mission is simple: To empower communities to better themselves from within.

Our advisors and 8 board members come from administrative positions in such large organizations. These include Vitalyst Health, Bank of America, and Keep Phoenix Beautiful. We are an Arizona Qualified Charity and receive tax credit donations plus receive individual donations through various employer payroll deductions.
