Pajaro St. Adalina Hernandez stands in line to get her book Jo Dares to be Different signed by author Maria Angeles Rodriguez Vazquez and illustrated by Jovita Wallace.

The Ajo Center for Sustainable Agriculture held an official grand opening to mark the completion of a recently remodeled physical location for their Farmers Market and Café at 100 Estrella Avenue. For years the Ajo CSA has organized weekend outdoor farmers market events but, said CSA director Nina Sajovec, now people will be able to buy their veggies more often during the week. The space is also equipped with a commercial kitchen to allow food vendors to offer prepared food more easily. Angie Harmon, social investment manager at Freeport-McMoRan, joined local farm manager Sterling Johnson, CSA director Nina Sajovec, Ajo District Chamber of Commerce director Bo Johnson, Pima County supervisor Sharon Bronson, and Annelise Keuper, owner of Curley Coffee, in a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Ajo Farmers Market & Café last week. School board to meet this week The governing board of Ajo Unified School District will meet this week with a study session on Tuesday, December 10, and regular session on Wednesday, December 11.

At the Tuesday study session, the board will discuss the personnel and business items they will be voting on the next day as well as learn about a proposed budget revision, hear about out-of-state travel for the art club, and discuss board agenda modifications for visitors’ comments and information and action items.
