• St. Agustin Mission Garden - Tucson, Arizona

      Reconstructed on the site of the original mission garden developed by Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries, St. Agustin Mission Garden contains verified historic plants and seeds from Tucson's 4,000-plus year multi-cultural agricultural history. This area of Tucson is known as the birthplace of Tucson and is believed to have the longest history of continual occupation and cultivation in the United States. Archaeological digs have shown evidence of farming by various groups going back to 2100 B.C.
