Sacred Earth

Botanical Interest: 

Plants used by Native Americans of the Four Corners region. A cultivated area showcasing the “Three Sisters” method of planting food crops in Zuni waffle beds is a highlight of the garden. Sacred Earth features a sand hill zone, a montane zone, a riparian zone and many desert areas.

It's a Fact: 

Sacred Earth receives little to no supplemental irrigation during the growing season. When the garden was re-designed around the year 2000, there was an official ceremony in which members of three Four Corners area tribes blessed the garden.
