Las Milpitas de Cottonwood is a six-acre community farm located on the banks of the Santa Cruz River in Tucson. We provide materials, education, and support for local residents to grow food for themselves, making healthy, homegrown food more accessible to low-income families.
Our farm is a unique community-building space where neighbors can gather, connect, learn, and share. The farm is also an educational site where we train and build leaders in desert food cultivation through workshops, work days, and partnerships with local schools.
At Las Milpitas, we aim to bring residents from all areas of Tucson together to build community and create strong leaders who can create and advocate for a resilient, sustainable local food system.
Las Milpitas is just one part of our Farm and Garden program. Learn more or check out our schedule of upcoming free garden workshops.
