Bean Tree Farm


Bean Tree Farm blends desert foods, earth care, rainwater harvesting, natural building and education in a hands-on artisan way. We aim to explore and share a way of living that honors the nature and culture of this place, inspiring the "rewilding" of urban and suburban communities to build resilience and food security, and empower folks with creative pathways to do so. 


We offer what we have learned through: 

  • hands-on workshops featuring seasonal desert foods & herbs, natural building,  earth-care and creative arts 
  • farmstands and tastings
  • desert walks, tours and harvests
  • public demos and talks in and around Tucson

As we grow, harvest and teach about the cornucopia of delicious and  nutritious foods and herbs that grow in the Sonoran Desert, we find that customers, students and visitors try new foods and recipes, savor the flavors and benefits of eating and living in relationship with Sonoran Desert rhythms- and are inspired to re-wild the landscapes of their homes and neighborhoods.     


Seasonal workshops, tours, desert food events and natural building projects are held in collaboration with:

  • Desert Harvesters 
  • Lorenziniworks
  • Community Food Bank 
  • Prescott College
  • Borderlands Restoration
  • Sonoran Permaculture Guild 
  • and others. 

Bean Tree Farm is a United Plant Savers Botanical Sanctuary.
