We’re always looking for new and innovative ways of decreasing our impact on the environment. All of our programs are developed with water use, low-impact practices, and local flora and fauna in mind. We’re committed to being a learning laboratory for the community, and poised to begin offering water-harvesting workshops beginning this spring!
One hour of site design and evaluation by Watershed Management Group. This will give Campo Urabno a conceptual plan to guide future development of the ranch, including water harvesting features & priorities.
Each hour is only $50.00 (WMG non-profit rate) Total Cost $600.00
We utilize our gardens for all of the programs at Campo Urbano, and are looking to expand. You can help us in our partnership with Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona grow more produce to distribute to low-income Southern Arizonans by giving toward the purchase of seeds conducive to desert gardening from Native Seeds SEARCH.
1 packet of seeds: $3.00
We’re partnering with Garden Pool to install a gutter system in our green house. The system will use an existing ferro cement cistern to run water through the gutters. We need a lot of gutters! Vegetables will be used for nutrition education, and to be sold at farmers markets.
10 feet of gutter is less than $6.00 Total Cost $150.00
Once funding is secured, the first workshop we’ll offer is an Earthworks Workshop! It’s a site-wide earthwork & grading for rainwater harvesting & storm water management, native planting, edible tree planting; selective guttering, & downspouts. We need some riprap to install these projects!
1 yard of gravel & riprap $20.00 Total Cost $300.00
Covert Scouting Cameras help us keep track of the health of our environment by documenting animals that come to the property. We want to document changes in animal sightings with the installation of water harvesting features & paddock paradise. Currently the ranch has 3 cameras, two on loan until spring from Saguaro National Park. We want to replace them with two of our own. You can help by giving toward the purchase of a Covert Scouting Camera.
