The Earth Harmony Festival will be held October 6 and 7, at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage, in Tumacácori, Arizona, with a vision to encourage the restoration of balance to the world’s people and ecosystems through awareness, cooperation, education, understanding, selflessness and a commitment to peace.
Keynote speaker Gary Paul Nabhan is an internationally celebrated author, conservation biologist, seed saver and sustainable agriculture activist, known as “the father of the local food movement.”
Activities include live music, food, arts and crafts, eco-booths, hands-on demonstrations, organic garden and eco-village tours, children's village activities, hayrides and special presentations. Live music is provided by the Global Change Music Nonprofit Record Label, which promotes sustainable living, including growing organic food, building green, permaculture, sharing services and goods and having a protective environmental consciousness.
Donations are welcome to help support Avalon Gardens Internships and the nonprofit Personality Integration Rehabilitation Program, which assist individuals from diverse backgrounds in various levels of healing, training and education in order to actualize their dreams and talents.
