Tucson Village Farm

Hoping for a better tomato crop next year?  Wanting to grow greens in your backyard this winter?  Or maybe you just want to learn more about arid land food production?  As a farm work volunteer, you can fine tune your desert gardening skills while helping us grow the vegetables that TVF uses for educational programs.  Our volunteers participate in all aspects of farming, including:  preparing garden beds, weeding, turning compost, planting seeds, harvesting, caring for our chickens, and so much more.  No experience necessary, just a willingness to work hard and learn!  We also have opportunities to volunteer to help with our kids’ programming.  People can inquire with Katie Brown Bernal at katieanne.1289@gmail.com for more info on how to get involved with that.  For general farm work, contact Alex Atkin, Farm Manager, at atkin@email.arizona.edu.

Beads of Courage are awarded to mostly pediatric patients for each procedure or treatment performed to combat their illness.  Some patients collect so many beads that they string them into necklaces, and have so many necklaces, they need drawstring bags to hold those.  Individuals or groups can sew bags at their own location, at times they determine.  Please sew Beads of Courage labels onto bags during the construction process.  See www.beadsofcourage.org for info on how to obtain labels, and for detailed instructions on how to sew bags with your donated fabrics

 

Project Logo

From Blue to Green is up-cycling based project that focuses on environmentally friendly ways to best serve our Tucson community. Our focus is up-cycling blue wrap typically found in hospital operating rooms. Each year hospitals around the world contribute to the 1 ton of blue wrap waste that gets sent to landfills. This plastic based material is perfect for up-cycling projects. We are currently making sleeping bags for the homeless and need volunteers who have access to a sewing machine or are able to sort and cut fabric.
