A tour of Avalon Organic Gardens EcoVillage will be offered at 1:45pm. Avalon Gardens is one of North America’s largest EcoVillages located on 185 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. Avalon Gardens continues to honor this tradition through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and fostering progressive realms of sustainability such as permaculture, water harvesting, green/eco building, composting, seed saving, heritage grain cultivation, and establishing Arizona’s largest food forest system.
Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage has hosted these wonderful Easter celebrations for more than 16 years, offering wholesome, family fun in the beautiful surroundings of mother nature. This working organic farm and ecovillage has horses, cows, goats, chickens, emus, llamas, and other fun critters for the kids to see.
Suggested donation is $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for teens, and $3.00 for kids 11 & under. Proceeds go to the nonprofit Global Community Communications Schools for Teens & Children. For more information call (520) 603-9932 or visit http://avalongardens.org/events.
