Workshop: Farm-to-Table

Join the 8000+ People Who Have Helped Build the World’s First Arcology

The principle of learning-by-doing has guided Arcosanti since its inception in 1970. People from all over the world come here to learn in an immersive environment unlike anywhere else. In an Arcosanti Farm-to-Table workshop, you’ll connect to the majestic High Sonoran Desert of Arizona, the unique architecture, and a culture that lives in both worlds—all while learning new skills and helping create community.
