Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage has hosted these wonderful Easter celebrations for more than 18 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. Gates open at 9:00am.

Times of the Purification Gathering
Avalon Gardens, Tumacácori, Arizona
Thursday • May 05, 2016 — Sunday • May 08, 2016
Event Begins at 9:00 AM

Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage in Tumacácori, AZ will be the honored host of a sacred international event: "The Times of the Purification Gathering". The intention of the Purification Gathering is to capture the heart of the Native American legacy through the arts, while exploring the indigenous wisdom of the ancestors as revealed in the prophecies of the numerous tribes of Turtle Island/the United States, and in particular highlighting the esteemed Hopi Prophecy of the coming "Fifth World".


The "Times of the Purification Gathering" will be a coming together of elders, speakers, storytellers, musicians, and dancers to share and teach about the prophesied signs which have been (and are being) revealed, indicating these times are upon us, and that all tribes are called now to join together for the good of all. The Purification Gathering is a call to brothers and sisters from the 4 corners of Mother Earth to come together in recognition of the Creator's call to purify and be made whole once again. A global ecological crisis is upon us and now, more than ever, it is imperative to pay attention to the ancient warnings of the indigenous peoples whose reciprocal and traditional relationship with Mother Earth has made them the earth guardians of the 21st century.


The Times of the Purification Gathering is part of the vision and work of Gabriel of Urantia (also known as TaliasVan) who is a spiritual leader, activist, author, musician, and cofounder of Global Community Communications Alliance and Avalon Organic Gardens & Ecovillage. The community was established in 1989 by Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase and now has 110 Destiny Reservists/Change Agents from around the world who have been called to the work of restoring global balance and harmony through personal transformation and selfless service to humanity.
