URBAN FOREST PROJECT
The Urban Forest Project by HFE is a Housing Community with a focus on equity planning--building a culture of Sustainability that encompasses a Sustainable and Socially-Just planet.
The goal of this project is to provide sustainable low-income housing, reduce energy consumption by 25 - 50% , and provide green spaces replete with edible shrubs and trees that help mitigate the Tucson Heat Island Effect. We have done this by creating an urban Food Forest.
The Urban Forest Project by HFE is a Green Leader in Southern Arizona, a member of Local First Arizona and a participant in the SCALE- UP (Sustainable Communities Accessing Lending and Expertise Upon Performance) Program.
We offer urban planting classes, planting and harvesting workshops, and food forest consultations. Make an appointment to come and check us out. We are a bicycle friendly community.
