This blog has been created in order to promote a long-time dream to build a small community on a large tract of virgin land in the vibrant Sonoran Desert outside of Tucson, Arizona. Here I will post all developments on the property, as well as new ideas of building and living sustainably in the desert. One of the major goals of this community is to have a minimum impact on the desert– preserving the land, its flora and fauna, by restricting invasive plant species and prohibiting motorized vehicles and all domesticated animals. In this way I hope to share this homestead with any persons interested in seeing, smelling, and hearing the true Sonoran Desert in all its glory.
I am a Texas native who fell in love with the Sonoran Desert in 1996 and can’t imagine a better place to live. I am an artist as well as a musician performing under the name Luis Sabor. I have two other blogs: Art By Lowell showcases my art as well as documents my travels and random musings, Sabor Music showcases my guitar and guiro performances as well as my favorite music videos.
