Going Back To Our Roots
But We're Not Done Yet
What We Are About!
Here at Unlimited Potential we believe that eating healthy is one of the greatest lifestyles to pursue. Healthy Roots is a program that provides information on the importance of an edible plant, its origin, its nutritional content, the best time to plant it, if it is appropriate for the climate of Arizona and its ecological impact. In addition to providing a healthy recipe.
What we have grown so far!
Nopal/ Cactus Garden
The first plant that Unlimited Potential planted because of its cultural ties to some Community Health Workers homeland. They saw that there were many cacti in Arizona but none were taking advantage of its benefits so they decided to plant and harvest them. This way they could educate others on how to cook and prepare them.
Healthy Roots Education
Almost every Saturday Spaces of Opportunity holds their farmers market where many small businesses sell their products and the organization can sell or at times give away the food grown in the community garden. There are performances, food, and classes given during the farmers markets. Unlimited Potential participates in the Farmers Market by doing our health fairs. We present the plants we have grown and the benefits it contains for our bodies. We want you to be aware of your health and to better help you take care of yourself.
The Inspiration for Our Program
In 2017 Unlimited Potential became one of the 5 founders of Spaces of Opportunity. During that time they were brainstorming in what to plant and some thought back to their homelands. Their ancestors were agricultural farmers who ate what they grew. Where there was no supplements and chemicals, it was completely organic. To not lose the culture, the idea was to bring that culture here for generations to come.
