I am a Tucson-based Realtor who specializes in desert-adapted homes and gardens. My primary interest is in regional architecture and landscapes that are well-designed for the Sonoran Desert. Building materials that keep out the summer heat such as adobe, strawbale, rammed earth and other ecologically-sound materials work beautifully for creating aesthetically-pleasing, comfortable, and energy-efficient desert homes. Keep in mind that every home and garden has potential to become more desert-adapted!


A wonderful desert dwellers' community outreach project is underway throughout the 27 libraries in the Pima County Library network! Areas in each library will have free environmental literature about living wisely in the desert and sustainability. Eco Kids Corners will serve children, while EcoNooks for Desert Dwellers is intended for teenagers and adults.

Practical information will be available about water harvesting, air and water quality, solar power, energy efficiency, healthy homes, desert gardening, in addition to other resource and money-saving topics. Special thanks to Pima County Department of Environmental Quality and Pima County Public Libraries for making the EcoNook for Desert Dwellers and Eco Kid Corners project possible!
