Mission Garden is a living agricultural museum of Sonoran Desert-adapted heritage fruit-trees, traditional local heirloom crops and edible native plants. We are a non-profit volunteer-based educational organization and our primary mission is to preserve, transmit and revive the region’s rich agricultural heritage by growing a series of garden plots that are representative of the more than 4000 years of continuous cultivation in the Tucson Basin.

Open Saturdays 8 am to 12 pm, April through November and  10 am to 2 pm, December through March.

The Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace have been awarded a 2015 Urban and Community Forestry Grant
