On April 25, 2018, the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice awarded the 3rd Challenge Grant to a partnership between the University of Arizona Community and School Garden Program and Flowers and Bullets Collective. The project, La Siembra: Sowing a New Model of Community Engagement through Urban Agriculture, involves the community in the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of an urban farm on the vacant site of the former Julia Keen Elementary School.

The Haury Program believes in strong partnerships to support initiatives within the University of Arizona and in the wider community. These partnerships leverage the resources of the University to promote excellence in research, collaboration, education, and programs. The Program encourages innovation in all areas and invests in networks and programs which educate and implement, especially those which give voice to and work on solutions for those populations most vulnerable to environmental and social justice challenges.
