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.
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. We also 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, instead we give the community a hand up.
Many of the staff, including CEO Darren Chapman, are also formerly incarcerated persons from the very neighborhoods we serve. 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.
