LET’S TALK ABOUT…Farming & Community in San Xavier

Farming has always been the way of life for the Tohono O’odham community in San Xavier, located just south of Tucson. Their way of life depended on access to the land and to the water, namely the Santa Cruz River, which nourished agriculture in the area for generations. But a history of division sown through government land allotments and land development plans, coupled with the declining flow of the Santa Cruz, fractured community farming. How did the community come together to revitalize the land for future generations? What lessons can we learn from their story?

Join Dr. Jacelle Ramon-Sauberan for a program about land, water, and community in San Xavier.

Stick around after the presentation for drinks and conversation with fellow attendees!

This free program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
