Sky Garden


The PHX Sky Garden is a community garden for all employees at Sky Harbor – city, airlines, contractors and vendors – who want the opportunity to volunteer for their community while learning some handy skills and tips to make their own garden greener.

The aviation community at Sky Harbor is a diverse one, and opportunities to bring it together need to be unique. This is an opportunity for employees of Sky Harbor to take part in a distinctive new project helping grow food that will feed the hungry in Phoenix while picking up skills that can be used at home.

Volunteers to the PHX Sky Garden will learn from master gardeners alongside their fellow aviation industry workers:Sky Garden view of station
