We'll harvest ironwood tree beans dried on the trees. They taste nutty, similar to soy, peanut, or pistachio. They're 32% protein and have been eaten for centuries by the locals. The trees can live 1400 years. They have gray bark and lavender blossoms in April.
Bring your hat, sunscreen, lots of icy water, sunglasses, and sturdy hiking shoes. Afterward we'll meet at my home for some wild desert treats, food prep demos, and maybe a swim in the pool!
The goal is to learn hands-on how to forage in the Sonoran Desert. Other medicinal and edible plants will be pointed out as we see them. Our attitude is one of deep appreciation for the Sonoran Desert and its inhabitants.
We'll endeavor to keep the 6' distancing rule in play for safety during COVID.
7:00 TO 10:00 a.m.
