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.
Proceeds benefit the Global Community Communications Schools for Teens & Children nonprofit.
Entrance fees include free hayrides and the Eggstravaganza Games. Pony Rides are $5.00 per ride or 2 rides for $8.00. $2.00 face painting. The ecovillage tour is $10 for ages 18 & up (free for 17 & under).
