Tucson Clay Co-op Garden of Eden

I am the director of the Tucson Clay Co-op.  September 2021, my son and I purchased a second location where our inside co-op members have been working since November. It is a fixer-upper - a 5700 square foot property on 1/2 an acre.  We plan to create a lush flower & food haven at our new location but  the more pressing issue is getting our roof coated and additional swamp coolers installed
on the north side of the building before the summer heat hits.  (the south side where our members are working is already cool).

We have already planted (with your kind help) a lemon, pomegranate, fig, Arizona Ash, Chinese Elm and mulberry trees as well as many vines.  In the future we are envisioning a Clay Sculpture Garden, Community Vegetable Garden and Outdoor Pottery Ramada.
as well as a Gas and Wood kiln.

In the past we have been self sufficient by selling our collectively thrown pots. Unfortunately  summer is coming faster than we are able to earn the money we need. If 100  of you can donate $100 it will help us a lot & will cover the cost of getting the roof coated, new swamp coolers installed. 

You are invited to take a tour of our new studio galleries and grounds.

Many thanks for your continued support. 
with blessings,

Other ways to help are volunteering to weed & plant, to paint, recommendations of handy people etc.
The  studio  is a dream come true, but it is also an enormous amount of work.
