Tucson Village Farm

January 16, 2014 , , ,

We are fortunate to have a wonderful teaching farm in Tucson, and I am lucky it is very close to my home.  I visited the Tucson Village Farm during the U Pick hours on Tuesday this week.  It is much more than I thought it was.  This campus is organized to teach kids how to grow, prepare, and eat organic produce.  Much is said about slipping healthy ingredients into the kid’s meals, but this is teaching an appreciation for the real thing.  I picked lovely greens and tasted a really good salad made from the garden while I was there.  I was pleased to see that many of the customers picking while I was there were kids and parents.  This is a natural way to teach the love of gardening and good health.

There is no better way to eat than farm to table.  It is encouraging to find this worthy institution making a difference in our city.  The food is tasty, too.

I think farms are very cool. I like that it’s part of the U of A. So educational and fun for kids!
