Community Gardens

TCAA supports two community gardens, Escalante and Clark Park, to build community through the production of high quality, organic fruits and vegetables. These gardens are opportunities to teach our community about sustainable gardening and healthy cooking.

Escalante Community Garden



Located behind the Escalante Community Center at 2150 E. Orange St, Escalante Community Garden is an organic garden that follows a communal model. A portion of the garden’s produce goes to the volunteer members who labor two hours a week in the garden. Another portion of the garden’s harvest is given to the Tempe Community Action Agency Food Pantry.

Escalante Community Garden hosts work days/potlucks on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month – starting at 8 a.m. Come join us to learn more about the garden!

Clark Park Community Garden

The Clark Park Community Garden is a collaborative effort of the Clark Park and Marilyn Ann Neighborhood Associations, and Tempe Community Action Agency. The garden was created in 2014 at the site of a former municipal pool.  The garden includes community growing areas that supply produce to the Clark Park Farmers Market and TCAA food pantry, fruit trees and 27 raised boxes available for rent to the community.  Two aquaponics gardens, an aeroponic Tower Garden growing system and a Xeric garden are also housed within the community garden.

Clark Park Garden hosts community work days on the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings of each month.  Anyone with an interest in working at a community garden are encouraged to come and participate.  For work day notification agenda information follow the garden email sign-up link below.
