The Sonoran Desert School Gardener's Almanac

The Sonoran Desert School Gardener's Almanac is a free resource for teachers, students, and the community at large funded by the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation. It is an annual publication that is designed to connect teachers and learners to the Sonoran Desert, its food systems, and communities. We partner with local knowledge holders, artists, and organizations to be sure this resource reflects this special region we call home. Our goal with the almanac project is that it will give voice to community members who have long been under-represented yet hold valuable knowledge and skills in growing food and using plants medicinally. By elevating community voice and cultural relevance, school garden practices become more potent and are more likely to make it into the homes of K-12 students.
