I am just wondering if there are other like minded moms in the Phoenix area? I have family there, but they are very conservative, go with the flow type of people. 

I am hoping to get into a grad school there and am a little nervous I won't fit in.

HI- which grad school are you looking at?  Phoenix is crunchy, lots of groups on now too.  My kiddo is older.  We have things like Whole Foods, sprouts, farmers markets, Trader Joes, and such.  The botanical gardens, zoo and science center all have kids type classes.  The libraries have kids programs and those are great places to meet other mommies.


You may need to hunt a bit based on where you are living but crunchy is out there!

I am in Phoenix area, too. My kids are not babies anymore so there are probably even more groups around than when my kids were small. I was able to find some good friends and groups here. I really am pleased with the Phoenix area-- born and raised here, went away for college, came back and raised our family here. The cost of living is low compared to other places. Very family friendly in parts of metro Phoenix and lots of community resources. Lots of diversity in the schools and neighborhoods for the most part. If you go to ASU and live in Tempe the have a decent public transportation system. Not so much if you move to the suburb cities. You will really need a vehicle. Good luck with your decision.
