MidTown Watershed Project: Part 1
Saturday, March 17 – 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
with Flowers and Bullets Tucson
Julia Keen School – Tucson, AZ 85713
Join Luis Herrera, Jesus Romero, and Brandon Alexander from Flowers & Bullets (F&B) for an interactive series on water harvesting, water education, and gardening workshops focused on water conservation. Each workshop is conducted at the Midtown Farm site, which serves the Barrio Centro & Julia Keen communities and outlines a different approach to manage our watersheds while educating our community members on water conservation. F&B uses the newly acquired 9.5 acre Midtown Farm as an educational site that has a potential impact on the water aquifers of Southern Arizona. Part 1 will focus on the importance, history, social context and science of water harvesting. Participants will engage in the plans & process of the reconstruction of an on-site Ramada, soon to be outfitted with rain gutters and a cistern that leads to a greenhouse.
