We are thrilled to invite you to our first-ever fundraising event: join us for a special evening of learning, tasting, experiencing, and appreciating. We will eat from the desert, learn about the history and culture of Sonoran biodiversity, and sip wild-crafted beverages while the sun sets over our new roasting pit.
The Land With No Name Sanctuary 501(c)(3) is a registered non-profit dedicated to the arts. Our mission is to gather land, art, and people together to create unbound experiences, engaging those who make and those who appreciate. We are located 35 miles southwest of downtown Tucson on land surrounded by open range. What started as a space for sculptures looking for a home has transformed into a living, breathing, sanctuary for art and artists alike. The Sculpture sanctuary now includes a large network of walking trails with sculptural works living among native plant life, and a solar powered straw-bale Studio House with rustic outdoor dining space.
Co-directors Ted Wade Springer and Kate Long Hodges have invested so much, growing this project into a true labor of love. Now, we are asking for help from our community to continue to make this incredible project possible. We have teamed up with some generous folks who are serious about plants and food to offer you a remarkable combination of place, people, and gastronomy. The experience will include some light refreshments as we welcome you to the Land, followed by a combined sculpture tour and botanical hike with LWNNS co-directors Ted Wade Springer and Kate Long Hodges, and expert naturalist Jack Dash. Dinner will include handcrafted, wild-sourced beverages (both with and without alcohol) and a gourmet, wild-sourced four course meal of foraged native and introduced plants and local AZ beef, all prepared by chef Krem Miskevich. There will also be some take-home treats!
