- Roosevelt GROWHOUSE
- Downtown Phoenix, Arizona, United States
- Growhouse is a community-based, public art experiment on a quarter-acre property in downtown Phoenix that is dedicated to the local food and handmade movement. Growhouse started on a vacant, blighted property as an informal greening, arts and revitalization initiative by two artists, Kenny Barrett and Kelly Placke, in November of 2008. Since then, Growhouse has grown into a beautiful, sustainable community garden, residence, artist collective and boutique supported by hundreds of community members and volunteers.

Good news! We’re shaded!! Kenny, Kelly, and Oscar manned the posts and set the sails one Sunday afternoon and constructed shade structures. Mesh banners found and donated by the neighboring DIG Gallery now shade each of our beds… Community recycling at its best!
The summer sun will take its toll no more on our thriving beds. Come on down and see our garden breathe a sigh of relief!
