Red Trailer Farm & The Cactus Car

Exhibit Opens Feb. 6

Experience a whole new kind of food truck at TBG!

Tucson has a wonderful food culture, exhibited by our UNESCO distinction, delicious restaurants, and prosperous food trucks. From our culinary heritage, a tapestry of Mexican and Native American traditions, delicious and creative food trucks have become established all around the city.

The Tucson Botanical Gardens is getting in on the fun.

A vehicle located in the center of the Gardens will be filled top to bottom with edibles: a citrus tree emerging from the roof, an engine full of herbs, baskets of edibles taken from the vines growing through the windows…. This exhibit will be an opportunity to show people that fresh produce can find its niche and flourish in unique places.

But we’re not done yet! We are also going to display our Cactus Car– a 1967 VW bug filled to the brim with cactus and succulents.

This is a bit of a home grown exhibit, created by people who love plants – and people.
