The Desert Oasis Teaching Gardens provide a place for our community to join together to learn, laugh, and relax. We work according to the principles of stewardship and resilience. We must thrive with our limited resources and care for the land so that it can continue to support us in the face of drought and other climate uncertainty. The Desert Oasis Teaching Gardens draws inspiration from the natural high desert landscape as well as the agricultural traditions of the regional Pueblo, Hopi, and Navajo peoples; the Spanish, Moorish, and Jewish families that settled here; and other arid farmers around the world. The garden is a space for sharing those histories as well as hopes for the future through storytelling, visual arts, and performance.
