COMMUNITY GARDEN & FARMERS MARKET
WHO WE ARE
The "Garden of Dreams" & Farmers Market was created to bring together community members to grow healthy and indigenous foods in our own backyard. We want to learn from each other and our elders about planting and harvesting techniques, help children feel connected to the earth and get their hands dirty in the soil, and have a safe, fun environment to grow and garden in a cooperative way.
.The "Garden of Dreams" team meets every first Monday of the month at the CPH trailer from 11:30 to 12:30 pm. All are welcome to join!
We're planning to start a Farmers Market in the summer of 2023 where local Diné community members can sell their own vegetables, soaps, honey or other creations with a larger audience. Please call Amber at 928-313-3528 if you're interested in participating. It will run the second Saturday of each summer month:
June 10, July 8 and August 12.
CPH wants to send out a BIG THANK YOU to Colorado Plateau Foundation and AZ Complete Health for supporting our “Garden of Dreams” Community Garden with generous grants this past year!
We’ve installed a beautiful red barn Tuff Shed, 2 greenhouses, 4 planters and have lots of other projects in the works.
Our gardening team is diverse, creative and ready to plant this spring! If you’d like to volunteer please let us know. We’re working with our Chinle schools too to hopefully create opportunities for students to get their hands dirty in the soil this spring planting, weeding and learning together.
Thank you again CO Plateau Foundation and AZ Complete Health for being amazing partners and investing in our Diné community!
