Ajo was the perfect town to end the trip in. It was a very picturesque town in a beautiful area with a rich history. The mural project was awesome to see, in my town we have an alley called “art alley” with a lot of murals as well, and I love the use of otherwise empty space to voice ideas and contribute to art in the area. The art also simply creates a more beautiful, enticing space. I also enjoyed the tour and thought it was interesting and impressive how the Sonoran Desert Alliance was working to revive Ajo through many different ways. The Culley school was a beautiful, cool building and I could imagine myself staying there in the small desert town for a year attempting to write a book. The refurbishing of the school for low income housing was a cool way to attack the problem of homelessness and poverty as well as utilize a space that would otherwise be empty. The local farming was exciting and impressive because in America today most people are extremely disconnected from their sources of food, and to implement growing and connectedness in schools and in the community will help re-connect Ajo to their food. This is especially important with the extremely high amount of Native Americans with diabetes from the shift in diet to more western, processed foods. Planting and eating original foods that were grown in the desert has been seen as a deterrent or solution to the problem. The food and the shops in Ajo were cool as well and I enjoyed the whole of the town.
