Arizona Homemade Artisans has grown out of the desire
to more fully share a holistic, interconnected and art-full approach to Sonoran Desert living.
Building on several years of community demonstrations
at Thursday Santa Cruz River Markets
for Community Food Bank, and over thirty years
raising families, gardens and green buildings,
friends and fellow teachers
Jill Lorenzini and Barbara Rose feel inspired to further
an important branch of work in the community.
In our view, everything is- and should be- interconnected:
building, gardening, wild-crafting, cooking, conserving, recycling and regenerating our creative relationship
The art of "home-making" strengthens neighborhoods
and nature, nourishes us, and feeds a common hunger for
a more natural way of life.
We want to collaborate with individuals and organizations
to grow AHA into a useful bridge, inspiring and connecting
old, new and aspiring homemade artisans to each other
and the region.
We recognize that although we are all here together working
for a better world now, the history of occupation and privilege
has enabled abuses of people and nature
that continue to this day.
We want to help change the story, to work collaboratively
for truth and reconciliation in our dynamic, diverse
and remarkable Sonoran Desert community.
This year, the Community Food Bank has engaged us
to present 23 demonstrations at the
Thursday Santa Cruz River Farmers Market.
to enhance and reinforce our market presentations.
We'd like to continue to grow these kinds of offerings
and empower homemade artisans to share their passion
and diverse skills, at the farm and around the region.
We're inviting conversation
with all organizations and individuals
who would serve their vision, mission and purpose by collaborating with AHA.
