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
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!
