People have been farming these desert lands for centuries using strategies that maximized water and varieties of crops well adapted to arid conditions. Tepary beans, fast maturing corn, cushaw squash, cotton, amaranth and more have all thrived in ancient gardens and farms. But these crops are not just in the archaeological record. These crops are alive today and ontributing to our local sense of place and diverse food ways. During this presentation I will present an overview of the last 4,000 years of farming in the Sonoran Desert and the future of quintessential regional crops.

Presented by Melissa Kruse-Peeples, the Education Coordinator for Native Seeds/SEARCH.
