What is Agri-Landscape?
Agri-Landscape with TigerMountain Foundation. It is truly an incredible experience. But first let’s go over the basics of Agri-Landscape. Agri-Landscape incorporates edible fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, and herbs into your landscaping. Turning a front or back yard, or an empty lot or space into bountiful food helps alleviate food scarcity and reduces the urban heat island effect.
Our initiative creates edible landscaping and spaces of opportunity to enhance or replace “regular” landscaping on your property or empty lot. We do this by adding diverse edible landscape; pollinator gardens, healing gardens, fruit and citrus trees, fruit and vegetable gardens or a combination of some or all of the choices pending your preference. We work with our municipalities and other prevalent organizations on mitigating the issues of food scarcity and reducing the urban heat island effect. Edible fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers are grown using water efficiency and soil conservation “Best Practices” and we empower our workforce participants through this workforce and experiential learning process.
Think about transforming your space or empty lot in this manner – we recently heard from a previous participant who converted his front yard into a garden and now trades the excess for eggs from a neighbor or a single mother who now provides more nutritious food to her family and gets a return on her agri-landscaping investment from the local Farmers Markets!! Imagine having fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables at your fingertips.
Whether you have a 20 acre ranch in the country or a couple of sunny patios in the city, there’s a way to make Agri-landscape work for you! Help us multiply the number of people that have access to healthy, nutritious food.

Economic/Community Development– TMF 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. We provide gardens with nutritious, naturally grown fruits and vegetables. TigerMountain Foundation empowers participants and their families with skills to be valuable employees engaged in living-wage jobs or have the knowledge to start their own backyard gardens to resolve their food scarcity issues.
To us, racial equity is the American Promise in action: a society wherein one’s ethnic lineage and color of skin are left to the history books as we embrace a new identity, united as Americans. We see a future without checked boxes on forms that categorize and divide us. It is a future where such things have become unnecessary and we all stand on equal footing. Additionally, TMF does not discriminate on any basis. All are welcome.
At TigerMountain, a person’s performance, merit and personal familiarity with the problems at hand are the only things that matter for leadership positions. Our CEO and approximately half of the participants are also people of color. Additionally, the community we serve is largely made up of marginalized persons of varied ethnic compositions.
