Projects

Our mission is not only to bring quality food to your table, we strive to teach people in general and children in particular about better food practices. We partner with a network of schools, universities and organizations to raise awareness on healthy and sustainable practices.

 

Highlights on current projects

 

The Mollen Foundation

Maya’s Farm is proud to be partnering with the Mollen Foundation to empowers children and families to garden and cook together.

As part of the Edible classroom series, we are currently working with Garfield Elementary school and teaching edible classes to 6th graders.

This project embodies our mission to shine light on sustainable farming and use food as a learning experience for children.

 

Arizona State University

Our long standing relationship with ASU has blossomed into a close partnership with the schools of Sustainability and Humanities allowing students to take part in the daily activities of the farm and work on sustainable food practices for the future (Dinner 2040).

We are now actively working on creating an internship program involving gardening, farming and growing for those who want to get a foot in the door!

We also partner with the School of Letters and Cultures to offer an immersive learning experience focused on cultural farming and Phoenix diverse culinary history.
