Truck Farm Phoenix at the Roosevelt Growhouse

From Truck Farm Phoenix’s facebook page:

Truck Farm was born in Brooklyn, NY in the spring of 2009, when Ian Cheney set out to plant a vegetable garden in the bed of his grandfather’s 1986 Dodge pick-up truck. The mobile garden project soon grew: Ian and collaborator Curt Ellis (co-creators of “King Corn”) took the public art project on the road, exhibiting Truck Farm at 40 schools and on the National Mall in DC. Their Truck Farm Garden Contest, judged by food celebrities Alice Waters, Michael Pollan and Marion Nestle, inspired 65 student groups to plant creative farms of their own.

Phoenix is proud to say that we are one of them. Truck Farm Phoenix was launched in the fall of 2011 and has been sewing the seeds of knowledge at schools and youth organizations across the valley, teaching kids how fun farming and healthy food can be, engaging them in thinking about where food comes from and getting them excited about growing food themselves.

On the days when the Truck Farm is stationary, you can find it at the Roosevelt Growhouse
