Happy Birthday, Tucson 2010 Kickoff!
Posted on | July 29, 2010 | 1 Comment
This Sunday morning, start celebrating Tucson’s birthday with breakfast and the first event of Tucson’s birthday celebration, 2010. Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace kick off the month by dedicating the gates of the Mission Garden. The gates, built and donated by Lloyd Construction, represent the history of agriculture and community life at the base of Sentinel Peak (A Mountain). The finished project will include plants and irrigation methods ranging from those employed by the ancestors of the Tohono O’odham, through the mission era and the plantings that would have sustained the residents surrounding the area in the era of the Presidio. The infrastructure is designed to include irrigation and raised bed cedar planters.
Breakfast will consist of donuts, bagels, Pan Nuevo, and a variety of beverages. It’s billed as free, but if you’d like to make a donation, it will help the Mission Garden Fund.
- Where: Corner of Mission Road and Mission Lane Tucson, AZ 85701. (Eastern base of “A” mountain.)For more info on this event, call 520-404-7237.
- When: Sunday, August 1, 2010, from 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
- How much: Free, but if you’d like to donate, the money will go to the Mission Garden Fund.
