We are located at 16500 N. Stallion Place (Tucson AZ 85739)
in Catalina, AZ, north of Tucson about 10 miles.
be happy to give you directions over the phone, but there is no phone at the garden, so it might be best to just
jot some of this down:
Travelling North on
Oracle Rd. (hwy 77 out of Tucson) in Catalina:
Turn on Hawser (by the Burger King) which is the next street north
of Golder Ranch Rd. These days it's also by the Brake Max end of the Basha's center.
Take Hawser to its end, then go left on Columbus
(any other way is a dirt road).
A little over a mile down Columbus after you crest a little hill is Stallion Place,
on the right. There is a yellow "no outlet" sign under the street name.
Up over the hill on Stallion and down the other side, sort of at the right-center
of the cul de sac, you will see our number, 16500, on an old TroyBuilt rototiller. Also
there is a little sunflower painting near the electric box and one over
the rototiller, and our driveway is in between, with the electric box on the right and the rototiller on the left.
dirt driveway down to the 2 gates, and use the one on the right which will be open if we are open. Sounds complex but
it's really quite simple!
For those of you coming from the Lago del Oro end of Saddlebrooke, take
Lago south to Golder Ranch~
Ranch west up to Coronado Forest (first right)~
Forest to its end and right on Hawser~
When Hawser ends go
left on Columbus (follow the pavement)~
After about a mile and a half
turn on Stallion Place which will be at the crest of the hill
on the right.
When Stallion turns north you instead continue east down our little dirt road, which
is just to the left of the electric box and right of the 16500 hanging
on the old rototiller. Follow the signs and yellow cans back to Our Garden.
And now.... coming from north of Catalina, south bound on Oracle
Rd, turn left at Edwin Rd. (Eagle Crest) which
is now paved through to Columbus.
Right on Columbus, and Stallion
is the next left turn past Pinto. Up over the hill, 16500 on the Troy Built rototiller, ya da ya da ya da
(see the paragraph above).
(Don't worry, it will make sense when you get here.
It's kind of like initiation....)
The old Troy Built sits proudly out there to welcome you in to what
it began. It helped feed us for so many years, about 25 or maybe more. In it's day it was the cream of the
crop. And it performed above and beyond the call of duty for any rototiller, putting in the irrigation for our whole
pistachio orchard as well as the asparagus beds we had around each of the 300 trees. We now use a BCS, but the
granddaddy out there is absolutely a piece of fine artwork in our eyes.
