How We’re Cultivating Lives

Darren Chapman, CEO of TigerMoutain Foundation, welcomes visitors to the Garden of Tomorrow in South Phoenix in Arizona.

This video was taken recently by a teen participant at our Spaces of Opportunity, one of our gardens built on a vacant lot in the middle of a food desert so it allows this economically disadvantaged area to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

Community Growing Project in Phoenix, AZ

TigerMountain Foundation empowers people by building flourishing community gardens and through our multi-ethnic and multi-generational Garden and Landscape/Agri-Landscape Initiatives. We mentor participants through an active and healthy eating lifestyle, completion of goals, and a Personal Strategy Roadmap, and transition them into workforce development skills preparing them to earn a living wage.

During 2019 we mentored over 1100 volunteers and participants plus their families meanwhile reaching thousands more through events and speaking engagements. Over 10,000 meals were provided.

Please join us in reaching even more of these at risk youth and adults to elevate them within their communities allowing TigerMountain to positively impact their lives forever.

Community Gardening

From the beginning of TigerMountain, gardening has been at the center. It brings people of all races, religions and socio-economic backgrounds together. But gardening at TigerMountain is more than just a pastime, it’s a classroom where we’re teaching life skills.

We have 4 community gardens throughout South Phoenix.

Some of the things going on at our gardens include:

Landscaping

Our participants provide landscaping services to local residents and businesses. Through this program, they learn real on-the-job skills. And the services provide operating income for TigerMountain. 100% of the funds TigerMountain makes from landscaping and gardening are invested back into the community.
