Seeking to build an inclusive spirit of community and promoting a sense of individual responsibility for the common good are core values of the members of Global Community Communications Alliance and ones our staff bring to all of our project endeavors. With obesity, apathy, and a general lack of engagement epidemic among our youth we believe our multi-pronged, wholistic approach to promoting healthier, more sustainable living provides the right approach for those seeking a more hopeful future, particularly among those in their formative years.
In the spirit of E.F. Schumacher's Small is Beautiful, we seek to demonstrate that small is possible. As we create a model of sustainable, organic, small-scale agriculture at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage we hope to inspire others to adopt similar pathways in order to create a sustainable future for our children and future generations.
In implementing our programs we have experienced first-hand the benefits of pooling our collective strengths, aspirations, and vision as we work toward building a more just, healthy, and sustainable society.
Our endeavors in sustainable living here follow a long agricultural history dating to 1691 where on this very site Father Eusebio Francisco Kino founded the Mission San Cayetano de Tumacácori in a Native American village that relied on the waters of the nearby Santa Cruz River to farm their crops.
In seeking to honor these agricultural traditions, we recently joined a coalition of other local farmers, millers and bakers to help revive two of the oldest grain varieties adapted to the arid Southwest: White Sonora Soft Bread Wheat and Chapalote Flint Corn, the original varieties of their species to be cultivated in the Arizona desert of this area.
Your donation helps expand this vision and provides scholarships and other funds for potential students with financial difficulty.
