Even Old Tucson Is Getting in on the Gardening Craze

Posted By on Thu, Nov 3, 2011 at 10:30 AM

I picked up the most interesting tidbit while interviewing the CEO of Old Tucson the other day.

Pete Manglesdorf said he's planning to add a two-acre garden to the theme park and movie set. Old Tucson recently added 12 new buildings and a small mock-up of a Tohono O'odham village complete with a native garden, and Manglesdorf would like to eventually expand the garden to the point where it could produce a decent amount of vegetables.

He's in league with the right people. The San Xavier Farm Cooperative helped Old Tucson install the first garden, and would be a great organization to team up with to increase the size of the operation.
