Earth Harmony Festival
Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage, in Tumacácori, will hold the sixth annual Earth Harmony Festival on October 7 and 8. The weekend includes conscious music, delicious food, local vendors and crafts, activities for kids and presentations on a wide variety of sustainable living practices on 220 acres.
Keynote speakers include Bill McDorman, former executive director of Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance, and Kate Tirion, director of Deep Dirt Farm Institute.
Organizer Amadon DellErba says, “We have created a physical and sacred reality that models the intrinsic values of environmental, social and spiritual sustainability." EcoTours share a comprehensive look into organic gardening, permaculture, rainwater harvesting, grey water harvesting, heritage crops and heirloom seeds, polyculture, food diversity, composting, solar and wind energy and green building techniques incorporating natural materials, as well as upcycled and recycled materials, watershed management and Arizona's largest food forest.
Admission is $10 for 12 and up/$3 for 11 and under. Fees from camping, activities and EcoTours foster projects for creating a more sustainable, environmentally conscious, and equitable world.
