Tucson Village Farm: Farm based education for children

Leave a comment

The recent Border Food Summit in Rio Rico, AZ included a full day tour. Erin Lingo and I chose the urban agriculture and local foods tour and visited a bunch of interesting projects in and around Tucson. I was really impressed with the Tucson Village Farm, check out what we learned from Leza Carter on the tour!
