Scenes from an Urban Farm Co-Op in the making… We had a productive “full moon folic” at the Phoenix Urban Farm!

Phoenix Urban Farm

We had a productive project weekend at the Phoenix Urban Farm.  Joe W. has a vision to co-create a co-op based Permaculture Center with community stakeholders.  He envisions a “community engagement center” where individuals can benefit from housing and employment opportunities, using their own talents and passions to contribute to the co-op.

For more information on Joe’s vision, see his write-up below.

Joe held a work day this past weekend, with help from members of our TimeBank and others from the neighborhood.  Here are some photos from the day.  (click photos to see slide show/captions).
