19North Community Garden

There's a quaint little garden off of 19th Ave and across the street from the metro that you may miss if you're not looking. But it’s actually a community project to bring people together and combat crime.

19 North is comprised of people from all backgrounds, schools, businesses neighborhood groups police and city planning, and valley metro collaborated together to make the community stronger. To help revitalize the area and combat crime the people of 19 North have come together creating projects and programs to help those in need.

One way they are doing this is with the community garden. It will launch on March 30th. Helps them engage with people in the community and gets people involved.

They also have something that they'll be doing on Friday 3/22 called "Hope Coach". This is where they walk throughout the community with members from the Phoenix Rescue Mission and seek to meet and speak to people on the street that may be in need of services. Some are homeless a can be taken right away to places that they are in need of services.

Grand Opening: 19North Community Garden

  • March 30, 10am-12pm, in the garden, 8215 N. 19th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85021
