Water Harvesting and Fruit Trees

For a hands on project, University of Arizona’s Water Harvesting Class volunteered to help us create the landscape on the South side of our lot where we planned to plant fruit trees.

Desert Survivors Nursery donated three fig trees from the Kino Heritage collection, two Sosa Carillo Black Mission and one Oro Blanco White.  We also purchased three Lisbon lemons, two Bearss limes and a Nagami kumquat from Mesquite Valley Growers.  On subsequent work days, the class planted the trees and completed the project by filling the water harvesting basins with wood chips.

We think it turned out great!  Thank you Water Harvesting, SWES 454/554!  Looking forward the first harvests..rain and frut!
