A tour of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage is offered after the entertainment 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.
Enjoy this special day of wholesome, family fun celebrating the promise of life eternal and the soon return of The Promised One in the beautiful surroundings of mother nature at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage in Tumacacori, Arizona.
