Phoenix’s Mountain View Park, 9901 N. 7th Ave., will soon be home to a community garden that will allow nearby residents an opportunity to grow their own fruits and vegetables, get outdoors and improve a vital neighborhood park.

Residents can join a volunteer day of service and celebration 7-11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 6 to showcase the completion of the garden plots and to kick off garden preparation and planting. Attendance is not required for participation in the garden.

The morning’s events include a ceremonial tree planting, cooking instruction from Kitchen on the Street, gardening lessons, and more.

Phoenix Parks Foundation will partner with the Parks and Recreation Department, the Sunnyslope Village Alliance, neighboring businesses, households, and local gardening groups to develop and grow the garden as a collaborative community service and wellness project. There will be a variety of plots available for residents.

Those interested can find more information on the Sunnyslope Village Alliance website at or by calling the alliance at 602-944-0941 or sending an e-mail to
