A tour of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage will be offered for those interested in learning about North America’s largest EcoVillage established in 1989.  Avalon Gardens is located on 220 acres of rich farmland just across the Santa Cruz River from the Tumacácori Mission established by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino in 1691.  Father Kino cultivated these lands to provide for its indigenous community and Avalon Gardens continues to honor this vision by fostering progressive practices of sustainability such as permaculture, water harvesting, green/eco building, composting, seed saving, heritage grain cultivation, wind and solar power, Arizona’s largest food forest system, aquaponics, community-building, and more.   

Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage has hosted Easter events for more than 20 years in celebration of this sacred day by offering wholesome, family fun in the beautiful surroundings of mother nature.  This working organic farm and ecovillage has horses, cows, chickens, emus, llamas, and other fun critters for the kids to see.

Event Begins at 10:30 AM

Explore Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage, one of North America's largest EcoVillages, during the annual celebratory event — the Earth Harmony Festival!


Throughout the 2-days of this exciting and educational event, festival-goers enjoy live music, speakers and tours of our uniquely designed residential center and surrounding organic gardens. See the future in action during presentations of sustainable living practices such as permaculture, organic gardening, seed-saving, composting, rain and grey water-harvesting, eco-building projects, Arizona's largest food forest system, solar and wind power, the workings of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and more.


The Earth Harmony Festival is always all-ages, with speakers and live music that offer higher-consciousness messages not to be missed by young or old. An interactive children's village, pony rides, and guided arts and crafts round out the many offerings for the young, or the young-at-heart.


Live music for the festival is provided by Global Change Music Nonprofit Record Label featuring TaliasVan & The Bright & Morning Star Band performing CosmoPop® (spiritual vocal music that addresses the sufferings of our times and gives hope for a better world to come™ ) VansGuard, Starseed Acoustic Ensemble, and Israfel Awakened.


The Earth Harmony Festival showcases local crafters and artisans in a Locavore's Vendor Village. Past vendors have included exquisite handmade jewelry, gourmet foods, tie-dyed clothing, and indigenous textiles, to name just a few. Educational booths offer information on how to integrate sustainable practices featured at the festival into participants' own lives and communities.


Best of all? Admission to the Earth Harmony Festival is absolutely FREE! All activities throughout the festival are by donation to go towards supporting agricultural internships offered by Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage, the Homeless Is Not My Choice ministry, and the Personality Integration Rehabilitation Program. Low-cost overnight camping is also available!
