San Xavier Co-op Farm: Harvest & Tohono O’odham Nation Education

  • Location
    Tucson, Arizona
  • Status

The Problem

Through our volunteer efforts with the O'odham nation, we hope to learn about their farming methods and native & traditional foods they eat. We are also looking forward to learning more about this Nation via education being provided to us.

Our Plan

Our group is traveling to the San Xavier Co-op Farm to volunteer and learn about the farm's beneficiary, the O'odham Nation. We will be harvesting local produce and learning about farming methods as well as local and native foods. The store nearby sells the harvest and all the proceeds go back to the Nation. We will also receive education about the Tohono O'odham.
