We'll learn how to harvest saguaro fruits. Bring a golf ball retriever if you have one. It is not required as you can borrow mine. Extendable to 12' or more preferred. Then we'll drive a couple miles to a grove of velvet mesquite trees that are ripe with beans and harvest them. This will be our main harvest of the day. Other edible and medicinal plants will be explained as we see them such as the paloverde and ironwood trees. Then we'll go inside and enjoy some wild desert treats. The exact addresses will be emailed to you within a few hours of getting your ticket at the Eventbrite link below. Let's connect with our desert plants!
Please bring heavy gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, lots of icy water, and wear long pants and long sleeves as it is a thorny, brushy area.
Thanks to owner Cassie Tolman of the Pomegranate Cafe for supporting local foraging by including some of it in her menu!
