Local Growing Project In Phoenix
The TigerMountain Foundation reverses that problem through our community gardens and landscaping initiatives. These initiatives also teach practical life skills to kids, adults and seniors, keeping them out of jail, and improving their lives and community.
TigerMountain Foundation empowers people by building flourishing community gardens and through our multi-ethnic and multi-generational Garden and Landscape/Agriscaping Initiatives. Additionally, we mentor participants thru an active and healthy eating lifestyle, completion of goals and a Personal Strategy Roadmap. Also, we help transition them into workforce development skills preparing them to earn a living wage.
How We Empower Communities to Help Themselves
- Restore pride in a community through beautification of vacant lots.
- Inspire people to volunteer and engage in their community.
- Provide youth the skills they need to prepare them for employment—and a better life.
- Provide people on-the-job opportunities through landscaping, planting in community gardens, and selling and marketing what they grow at farmers’ markets.
