Phoenix Transect Project

PROJECT: Urban Agriculture and Cultural Politics at the Phoenix Indian School Site


Agriculture at the Phoenix Indian School site has had a long history, from the ancient Hohokam canal running through the site, to farming programs at the Phoenix Indian School, and to the most recent incarnation at the PHX Renews site. Examining the history and land use of this one site over time reveals interesting tensions in land appropriation, our relations to food in the city, and cultural politics. This project is an open-ended narrative seeking to begin unraveling the history of this site as well as its future while bringing to light the social and political contestations embedded within.
