Help our Cochise Garden Grow!


Farmyard, a local organic farm, offers school gardens a way to raise money through their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Garden Give Back Program for Schools. Parents simply sign up for a 10 Week Produce Basket Subscription and Farmyard will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Cochise garden. All of their produce is grown using organic practices at their urban micro-farms located in Phoenix and Scottsdale.

A half share comes to $275 for the 10 weeks. They also offer full and family sizes. *We do need a minimum of 5 families to sign up.

A sample half share (from last week):

 4 oranges, 5oz bag salad mix or arugula, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch Kale, 5oz bag Spinach, 1 head Garlic, 1 head Broccoli. Fruit will be included about 75% of the time.

Delivery  ends April 25th (no delivery Feb 28th and March 7th). The baskets will be delivered to school (near the front office) Tuesdays around 2 pm.  Any baskets not picked up by 3:45, will be donated to school staff.  

If you’d like to know more about the farm, you can check out Farmyard’s website or contact Sarah at farmers@myfarmyard.com. For other questions, please contact Shannon Ryan at  shannonryan77@yahoo.com
