Hopi farming with JERRY HONAWA (Friends of the Well)

Join the Friens of the Well for a morning of gardening at the Traditional Use Garden at Montezuma Well.  This is an interpretive garden, meant to simulate the gardens once planted here by the Hohokam and Sinaguans. Hopi elder and farmer Jerry Honawa will demonstrate some of the methods passed down to him for planting Native crops.  The garden features those crops most likely cultivated by these early people: corn, beans, squash, melons, sunflowers, cotton, gourds, and amaranth.  Garden watering came from the same irrigation ditch used by the ancient farmers.
