Good day everyone!
It has been a long time coming but our 1st tour of the Senior Garden is scheduled for this Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 8:00am The new Senior garden was completed in the Spring of 2015. Currently there are 10 raised beds, and plenty of space for additional in ground planting. The Fall planting has already been started and will be harvesting soon. The highlight of the tour will be the gourds! there are dozens and dozens of gourds surrounding the South and East fences.
Excited to have Mr. Louis David Valenzuela attending the tour. Mr. Valenzuela will be giving a mini presentation on how important the gourds are in the Yaqui culture and traditions.
We will have a display of gourd drums, rattles, gourd carvings, and crafts.
The address: 7547 S. Camino Benem, Tucson Arizona 85757.
