1024px-arivaca_schoolhouseOne hour southwest of Tucson lies the old mining town of Arivaca, now home to artists, crafts people and other professionals, as well as to award-winning authors Byrd Baylor and Kenny Buchanan. Arivaca has the oldest school house in Arizona, which is at the center of the Arivaca Ecofest on Saturday, January 28.

The Ecofest grew out of an annual tour of Arivaca homes, many of which have eco-friendly features. In addition to the self-guided tour, there will be demonstrations of green techniques, including aquaponics and adobe brick-making. A number of environmental organizations will have booths there. Moreover, there will be five speakers giving presentations on various aspects of sustainability.

And, of course, there will be food and music!
