When Angie Mahkee moved to Arizona from New Mexico in 2007, her lifestyle changed completely. She exchanged her rows of corn for a backyard that wasn’t big enough, and soil that wasn’t rich enough, to grow anything.

.

Although she tried to plant a few things in the backyard of her rental house, it just wasn’t right.

.

Today, the plot is still flourishing, with new and older vegetable plants with a splash of regular flowers here and there. Mahkee, 41, said it is a place where she can lose herself and escape reality for a while.

.

When I come in the morning, I forget Im in the city besides the bell of the light rail on the other side (of the gate), she said.

UA, feds offer tools to help urban farmers

.

The Central Avenue and Indian School Road lot was the first space of its kind by PHX Renews. Since its opening, three other lots have been renovated. This idea of cultivating, processing and distributing food in or around a village, city or town setting is called urban agriculture, a form of farming that is booming, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

.

The University of Arizonas Cooperative Extension program works to give the tools and technical support to help those gardening at the Central and Indian School location.

.

Kelly Murray Young, assistant agent for the extension program, said that the organization strives to educate those who want to be a part of the movement.

.

Urban-farming programs offered by the UA extension program, part of the university’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, include farm tours, an eight-week business program to teach farmers how to make a business plan and a five-week crop-production class. A post-harvest production class is being created.

.

“We are an urban community, but we are a very sprawled urban community,” Young said. “Accessing that land and getting irrigation is an issue … This local food movement is very new here. It is just very recently that people in power have become interested.”
