The Santa Cruz River plays a central role in Tucson's food culture. In this interactive panel discussion, we'll learn about the connection of local heritage foods and river flows, past and present, with Jesus Garcia from Mission Gardens, Don Guerra from Barrio Bread, and Brian Wong from BKW Farms. Our panelists will share insights on how farmers and local food producers can contribute to the community’s river restoration efforts. WMG’s Cultural Ecologist Joaquin Murrieta and WMG’s Executive Director Lisa Shipek will join the panel.
