Event Begins at 9 AM
Bring your family and friends to Avalon Gardens’ annual Easter Celebration! Gates open at 8:30am and this joyous event kicks off with pony rides from 9:00am to 11:00am. At 11:00am is a hayride out to an awesome Easter Egg Hunt, which starts at 11:30am and ends at 12:15pm. There will be hunts for different age categories so everyone is sure to come home with big smiles and bountiful baskets.

After the hunt at 12:30pm, guests can enjoy healthy, delicious refreshments and beautiful, uplifting live entertainment reflecting the true spirit of Easter. TaliasVan’s 45-voice Bright & Morning Star Choir & Orchestra will perform two original Easter songs and entertainment will be provided by students from Global Community Communications Schools for Teens and Children.

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 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. 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 17 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 for entrance is $10.00 for adults, $7.00 for teens, and $3.00 for kids 11 & under. Pony Rides are $5.00 per ride. 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.



Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminar
Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminar
Avalon Gardens, Tumacácori, Arizona
Thursday • April 23, 2015 — Sunday • April 26, 2015
Event Begins at 9 AM
Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage invites you to join us in an exciting and innovative approach to community development and cultural enhancement. Our model community of 115+ men, women, and children is an experimental prototype intentional community designed to be replicated throughout the world, and is the largest EcoVillage in the United States. For over 25 years we have been working in cooperation in constructing this learning center in our efforts to share the fruit of our labor with other planetary citizens.

We are offering people, individuals and groups alike, the opportunity to come and learn about our method of sustainability through practical advice. We'll be providing the necessary knowledge and tools to replicate this model of living anywhere. The world is rapidly changing and many of our resources are being mismanaged and/or are in very short supply. It is with the utmost sense of responsibility and accountability that we share this wealth of information with you.

Additional Details

A certificate of completion is given for the Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminar.
Register a month or more in advance for only $500 and save $200! Pay $250 at time of registration (non-refundable) and $250 upon arrival. Includes housing and organic meals for duration of stay.
Registration less than one month in advance is $700.
Camping is optional and is included in the price. Please bring your own tent and a good sleeping bag, as it can get nippy at night. If you need a tent, we can provide one for $7/night.
A tour of the facilities will be held on Thursday.


OPTIONAL: Come Wednesday & Thursday for 2 days of mini-internship, hands-on in the soil. $150 extra for 2 days (recommended as it is only half-price).

This Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminar is for those who really want to try to start their own EcoVillage and explains what that will take. Although it has information on sustainability, it is not a Hands-in-the-Soil experience. It is academic in nature. If you want a Hands-in-the-Soil experience, it would be best to come and take an agricultural internship.
