Welcome to the official meetup for Garden Pool, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization for sustainable food production and education!

Join this meetup to:

  • attend tours at Garden Pool homes throughout the Valley.

  • have fun at Food Drives, Fund-raising Events, and Potlucks.

  • learn at FREE Informative Classes.

  • volunteer with GP-Team Public Volunteer Projects to get a first hand experience and help others build and grow in our community and abroad.

  • get to know others in the community who care about growing food!

Garden Pool is dedicated to research and education of sustainable ways to grow food. Our mission as a non-profit is to develop better ways to grow food and help others do the same. Our operations are based in NW Mesa, Arizona at the home of the original Garden Pool.

The GP combines:

  • solar power – harnessing and storing the sun’s energy

  • water conservation – harvesting water and recycling waste & rain water

  • poultry farming – raising chickens

  • aquaculture – raising tilapia fish in ponds

  • hydroponic & aeroponic gardening – growing without soil

  • organic horticulture – using natural methods to control garden pests

  • aquaponics – the symbiotic cultivation of produce and fish in a recirculating hydroponic environment

  • bio-filtration – natural water filtration method using biochemistry and duckweed

  • dairy goats - dwarf Nigerian pygmy goats provide fresh milk daily

  • dwarf fruit & nut trees - small trees that produce an array of food

The Garden Pool has been featured by the TODAY Show, Whole Foods, Nat Geo, The Learning Channel, Discovery's Treehugger, NY Times, and media from around the world. It is a one of a kind backyard food-producing ecosystem that was voted the Phoenix New Times Best Backyard Farm in 2012. Come see what the buzz is about!
