Much hard work from the board to each of our kids, volunteers and staff, has grown The Scott Foundation to this point. After 15-years of service, we are now caring for more animals and educating more kids than ever before.
Shifting with the times we live in, and what is yet to come… Scott Foundation takes a collaborative and innovative approach to fulfill our intentional vision. While our youth initiative serves Arizona foster kids, our strategic vision centers on the ecological root cause, and is intended to secure the Foundations experiential programs as stewards of the land "in perpetuity" in the face of changing landscape.
The Farm at Scott Foundation builds on ecosystem restoration through permaculture. With a focus on water cycle restoration, underground aquifers are charged while the Riparian area serves 30+ Federal Threatened and Endangered Species.
This in-depth documentary explores Allan Savory and how he has used Holistic Management to completely transform his land in Zimbabwe.
Holistic Management is a process of decision-making and planning that gives people the insights and management tools needed to understand nature: resulting in better, more informed decisions that balance key social, environmental, and financial considerations.
Permaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies. The Farm at Scott Foundation, offers participants the opportunity to heal, grow, build and contribute as good citizens and provides an immersive experience into the inner workings of an organic farm, animal welfare, wildlife conservation, environmental protection and more.
For peace of mind, join us in preserving an areas of permaculture in Cave Creek Carefree, Arizona.
Established in 1905, The Tonto National Forest is over 2.9 million acres and formed to protect its watersheds around reservoirs. The forest produces an average of 350,000 acre-feet of water each year. Six major reservoirs on the forest have the combined capacity to store more than 2 million acre-feet of water. Management efforts are directed at protecting both water quality and watershed and riparian area conditions.
It is also the largest national forest in Arizona and the sixth largest national forest among 154 USDA National Forests. It is one of the most-visited "urban" forests in the United States with 3 million visitors annually. Fish and wildlife are abundant on the Tonto; more than 400 vertebrate species are represented, including 30+ listed among federal and state Threatened and Endangered Species. Maintaining quality habitat to support and improve wildlife diversity is primary management consideration.
Located in Tonto National Forest, is the Town of Cave Creek & Carefree which take great pride in the preservation of the Sonoran Desert. Carefree and Cave Creek share a beautiful, ancient landmark, Black Mountain; and, a dedicated Chamber of Commerce. Interestingly, the towns do not share historical beginnings.
Cave Creek was established pre-statehood, and Carefree was established post-statehood. Residents cite the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert, clean air, less traffic, peace and tranquility as the top reasons to live in the area.
