Mission Statement

Desert Marigold Garden strives to create a harmonious connection between the earth and cosmos to achieve a balance that supports all life in and around the garden. The DMS Garden is a way to bring healthy live food, fresh from the source where it was grown, directly to the surrounding community.

Description

In the heart of Desert Marigold School lies our biodynamic garden. Under the watchful eye and dedicated efforts of Farmer Tony, it has evolved from a concept to a fully functioning flower, herb, and vegetable garden. Over thirty beds take on a shape that looks from overhead like a Yin Yang flow form. This 11,000 square foot plot of land has the potential to nourish all the children and families of our community through our developing "Seed to Table" program. It embraces ongoing visits by the children who work and learn in the garden. The garden supplies produce to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and the weekly "After School Farmers Market". Our biodynamic produce also finds its way the downtown Downtown Phoenix Public Market throughout the school year. .
