Going Back to Our Roots

Perspectives on Tucson’s Rich Agricultural History

Tuesday, May 14, at 6:00 pm

Agriculture has a 4,000-year history in the Tucson basin. Join us at our May monthly meeting, when we will explore that rich history.

Duran Andrews, San Xavier Cooperative Farm Manager, and Kendall Kroesen, PhD, outgoing Outreach Coordinator at the Mission Garden, will offer views of Tucson’s agricultural history, sharing perspectives on its influence through the centuries on the region’s shape and development. They will consider how changes in population, technologies of agriculture, and climate have impacted agricultural development in our region and how they all weigh in the balance as we envision a sustainable future. Opportunity for questions and discussion will follow the presentation.
