Abundant Harvest Cooperative

Abundant Harvest Cooperative is a network of backyard gardeners and small farmers who sell produce at our weekly farmers’ markets. Our innovative AHC model provides economic opportunities for small-scale food producers, makes fresh produce accessible to low-income customers, and creates welcoming spaces for cooperative members to come together, share knowledge and resources, and build community around local food.

You can read more about our local growers here.

Interested in learning more or joining our Abundant Harvest Cooperative? Please review our AHC Guidelines before applying. Our team of Lead Growers will review your application.

Farm to Institution

Our Farm to Institution initiative connects local farmers to large institutional buyers like hospitals and schools. Access to these larger markets provides economic security for local growers, increases the region’s supply of healthy, local food, and keeps resources right here in our local community. Our institutional purchasers include Tucson Medical Center and Tucson Unified School District. Over 60,000 local students are eating locally-grown fruits and vegetables!
