Arcadia Edible Garden Tour
Come and see what we're growing in Arcadia! With year round sunshine and affordable flood irrigation available, we have the luxury of growing a variety of fresh, organic produce in our own yards. Phoenix began as a small farming community that had wonderful citrus groves that still exist. We have a long history of growing food on a local level.
Yard space isn’t just for grass anymore. At the Arcadia Edible Garden Tour, you will see how a group of local edible food gardeners are continuing on this local farming tradition, and in the urban Phoenix setting, have changed their front and backyards into productive garden space! While we know that for prior tour goers the tour has been in the Arcadia area only. But this year we are branching out a teeny bit to visit some lovely can’t miss gardens in Central Phoenix too!
The tour will feature urban orchards of stone-fruit trees, espaliered apple trees, nut trees, vegetable & herb gardens that use traditional and raised bed techniques, berry hedges, pollinator gardens of mixed beds of flowers and edibles, composting systems in a variety of sizes, grey water ponds, and everyone’s favorite – the backyard chicken coops and dairy goats!
At Arcadia's Edible Garden Tour you will have the opportunity to meet the gardeners, ask them questions, and get inspiration for your own garden while getting to know your neighbors!
Please join us to see these 9 edible gardens that showcase productive landscaping at its’ finest. You will see that these gardens are not only much more practical than ornamentals, but truly beautiful as well!
