The Saguaro Juniper Corporation is a group of over 60 associates holding both deeded land and land leased from the State of Arizona. This land is located in and around Hot Springs Canyon, a major tributary of the central San Pedro River in the southeastern part of our state. Saguaro Juniper associates are more likely to consider themselves stewards of the land rather than owners. To quote from the Preamble to our Saguaro Juniper Covenant, “In acquiring private governance, we agree to cherish its earth, waters, plants and animals in a way that promotes the health, stability, and diversity of the whole community.” Thus we do not seek to isolate wildlands from all human contact, rather we hope to include human beings as partners embracing the land, its plants and animals. Saguaro Juniper is a share-holder corporation that makes decisions by a consensual process.
