Tumamoc Hill Agave

At the base of Tumamoc Hill, where the UA Desert Laboratory is located, is an ancient agave horticulture site and agave roasting pit that were once used by the Hohokam people of the American Southwest. Since the early 1980s, UA scientists have been using this spot to replicate Hohokam techniques for agave horticulture. Jacob Chinn photo
