UACE Pima County Tucson Village Farm
 
 
 
Tucson Village Farm (TVF) is a working urban farm built by and for the youth of our community. A program of the Pima County Cooperative Extension and the University of Arizona, TVF is a seed-to-table program designed to reconnect young people to a healthy food system, teach them how to grow and prepare fresh food, and empower them to make healthy life choices. To accomplish this, Tucson Village Farm offers year-round, instructional, hands-on programs for youth of all ages. We target urban youth from all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The farm serves as a safe urban location where youth can come to be out of doors and engage in physical activity while contributing to and participating in local food production, preparation, and consumption. By focusing on the building of soil, integrative pest management (IPM), weed management, crop rotation, and cover cropping, Tucson Village Farm is committed to practicing integrated farming techniques and stewardship of our land. All TVF produce is grown herbicide and pesticide free, with lots of love for and by the youth and our community.
