I’d like to invite all West University residents to a signing for my new book A Desert Feast on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mission Garden. The book covers thousands of years of Tucson food history from the invention of agriculture to how school gardens today are teaching children to grow food. It tells the story of why Tucson was named a UNESCO City of Gastronomy. There will be farmers and artisan food makers scattered throughout the garden to tell their story. Archaeologist Alan Denoyer will show off a frame for a pithouse, the typical dwelling around here for thousands of years. Bring the family; kids will love it!

Mission Garden encompasses four acres and is inside an adobe wall. If everyone stays masked and properly distanced, we can have a fun and safe day celebrating Tucson’s history.
