At ECO Farm, you can...
Nurture New Life
Growing organic food is important, but seed saving is crucial. To save seeds is to preserve food culture. When we save our seeds and share them with our friends, families, and communities, we become part of their story.
Here at ECO Farm we have an impressive expanding seed collection including 62 crops and 80 varieties.
One of our main goals is to establish a more intensive seed saving program. With your help, we can makes this happen
Feed the Community!
The Food Just Movement works to ensure universal access to nutritious, affordable, and culturally- appropriate food for all.
Here at ECO Farm, we are passionately contributing to the Food Justice Movement with partnerships with local food banks and farmer's markets.
Promote Organic Agriculture!
Unstainable agriculture is the largest driver of biodiversity loss. It contributes to global warming, soil contamination, threatening rural livelihoods as well as food and nutrition security.
Organic agriculture reduces non-renewable energy use by decreasing agrochemical needs, lowering the risk of environmental pollution, and helps to severely reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Organic agriculture also works with and promotes sustainable farming practices that enhance biodiversity, strengthen soil health, and mitigate climate change while adapting to it.
Help us spread the word and contribute to the health of our beautiful planet.
Build a Better Future!
Do it yourself (DIY) farming projects are becoming more popular. People want to grow food at home!
To be successful, you need to have the right equipment and some knowledge about how to grow plants.
Here at ECO Farm, we are constantly building DIY projects, providing a great opportunity to learn and participate.

Propagate Native Plant Species!
In addition to providing resources for local wildlife, native species evolve for survival. Consequently, they tend to be more naturally adapted to local growing conditions and often require fewer inputs (i.e. fertilizer or water) for successful establishment.
Here at ECO Farm, we do our best to incorporate native plants in our farming systems.
With your support, we can do more to enhance our native bio-diversity!
If you purchased 350 pounds of vegetables at a grocery store, you'd have to pay more than $600. Growing the same amount in your garden costs about $70. So you're saving money and getting great food to eat.
ECO Farm provides an opportunity to learn how to grow your own healthy organic produce!

Grow Lots of Garlic!
Americans eat more than 250 million pounds of garlic a year - more than four times the amount consumed in the 1970's. Also... It's delicious!

Plant Entire Forests!
A food forest is a way to grow food by mimicking the structure of a forest. Nature is a master of efficiency. By copy this natural structure, a food forest can help you work with nature to grow more food with less resources.
ECO Farm is committed to planting food forests to grow food for your family and the Verde Valley community, support wildlife, heal our living worlds and build healthy soil.
We have planted hundreds of trees in the last ten years to fulfill our commitment.
