Land Acknowledgement

Community Gardens of Tucson acknowledges that the lands on which we garden are the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Hohokam, the Tohono O’odham and the Pascua Yaqui peoples who have been living and farming on this land for thousands of years.

We are grateful to learn from the desert farming practices these Indigenous peoples have developed through the centuries.

We recognize the historical injustices perpetrated on Indigenous people and that colonialism is still an ongoing process and are mindful of our own participation.

We honor and celebrate the cultures and contributions of the Indigenous people of the Tucson Basin.
