In collaboration with Banner Health, University of Arizona Cancer Center, Community Gardens of Tucson, and UArizona Pima County Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners, the investigators will conduct a pilot feasibility study of community gardening in melanoma survivors integrating UV sensors. Harvest for Health Together Arizona (H4H2-AZ) is an evidence-based program adapted for arid desert gardening that also addresses sun safety through experiential workshops and education. The investigators propose to evaluate adherence to and acceptability of the intervention. The investigators aim to see if H4H2-AZ may improve cancer preventive health behaviors (including diet, physical activity, energy balance, and UV protection) and quality of life among melanoma survivors.
