The Garden strives to be a leader in promoting community gardening in the Phoenix area by designing and implementing a community garden with staff and volunteer involvement. The community garden will serve as a model that demonstrates vegetable gardening best practices in the desert environment, promotes educational opportunities, enhances and further develops a sense of community within the Garden. We will share the results with extended communities beyond the Garden.

This project is possible through a generous grant from the Steele Foundation Inc. The purpose of the grant is to fund phase one of the 2012-2017 Community Garden initiative.

How to Read a Plant Label

As a place of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants, the Garden provides information about plants using many different techniques. One of these methods is through labels. These labels provide the Latin name used by the scientific community, its common name, where it grows and when it blooms.

You can customize your Garden experience further by downloading the Garden app. It includes trail guides, maps, garden tour, plant information and pictures, and a learning center that helps you care for your plants at home. You can download the app through iTunes or Google Play for 99 cents.

The Garden app was developed by Clarisoft & MuseumXP and Garden staff members.
