Mohave County's first Permaculture Demonstration, Garden Art Gallery, and Learning Center, located in Golden Valley, Arizona. Dedicated to advocating the historic "Victory Gardens" of the 40's, and offering presentations of new techniques, "green" technology, and stratagies in "sustainable living."
The gardens are a project of Mel and Melanie DeBo Stauffer, in their effort to preserve a small piece of rural beauty of Golden Valley for future generations. (Click here to see "A Garden Grows in it" article)
Melanie Debo Stauffer has been an environmental activist promoting sustainability in Mohave County, and an activist in Golden Valley, doing outreach to housing developers to take their projects "green," and advocating a "Dark Sky" (See Dark Sky Association) agenda to keep the beautiful night sky ambience of the valley free of light polution that is now plaguing major cities across the country.
This Garden is Dedicated to the Memory of Our Grandfathers
John Baptiste DeBo and Martine Dominic Benato
