Urban Farming Education and TigerMountain Foundation Partnered up together to help tackle the issue of food insecurity in Phoenix. As part of this partnership, the Fresh Food Collaboration Movement was created. This is a group of local organizations working to help alleviate food access issues due to the COVID-19 crisis.
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.
#GivingTuesday (said: hashtag giving Tuesday) is on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose. To celebrate and encourage giving.
TigerMountain encourages you to get involved in #GivingTuesday. Give back in a way that is meaningful to you. From fundraising to volunteering to pro bono service, #GivingTuesday is a great way to engage with your community and to become a part of a larger worldwide movement that promotes generosity.
About TigerMountain Foundation
Challenged Communities need help. The TigerMountain Foundation reverses that problem 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. We are a Non-Profit Community Garden located in Phoenix, AZ. See more of TigerMountain Foundation at work in the Video Library.
The mission of TigerMountain Foundation (TMF) is to empower people by building flourishing community gardens, providing job skills, support and workforce development through neighborhood revitalization and beautification with our multi-ethnic and multi-generational initiatives. TMG helped 1123 persons plus their families and friends in 2018. Also many of whom were referred to us through parole/justice systems. Another 2200 volunteer mentors also helped us accomplish this outreach initiative to resolve food scarcity and educate participants on job skills to earn a living wage. An additional 3,000 also gained knowledge through speaking engagements. Funding has generally been from grants and individual and corporate donors. However, in 2019 has seen a major push for self-sufficiency through our agriscaping (agricultural landscaping) initiatives and farmers market sales.
