The Growhouse Takes Root in Downtown Phoenix

Who says you can't grow anything in the desert? All you naysayers can find out the truth like we did on a Sunday between 10 am and 2 pm at a little spot called The Growhouse.

Located on the northwest corner of 6th Street and Garfield and supported by Roosevelt Row CDC, The Growhouse is a public space where anyone who wants to participate can share in the bounty.

"The location of the house is key for the neighborhood, [we're] an anchor for our block." says Kenny Barrett, Program Manager for RR CDC.

"The garden is growing and taking on new forms almost daily," Barrett says. Already, they have chickens -- which means eggs. You can get them daily at Urban Beans.
