Agave Damn About Local News

A plant sale & fundraiser for Arizona Luminaria

Your baby agave awaits!

Local news strengthens communities like ours. It helps us understand what our government is doing and how we might get involved to empower our neighborhoods and communities. Local news also has the power to erase some of the polarization that national media sows and instead connect people to each other.

You can help build local news that does those things by helping nonprofit Arizona Luminaria grow! Our goal for the “Agave Damn About Local News” fundraiser is $5,000 to help connect your community to local news that helps them take action.

Plus you get a baby agave sourced from a midtown grandma octopus agave; grown by an endangered journalist under an old mesquite tree; visited regularly by wild bunnies and squirrels for added cuteness. Pest control by a Vermillion flycatcher. Your agave was grown with authentic Ace Hardware potting soil, water from the tap and 100% pure Tucson sunshine. We’ll even read your baby plant a local news story so it grows up smart.
