We'll meet at co-host Mike Clow's ranch 20 miles southeast of Maricopa, Arizona. We'll drive a few miles on gravel roads to the hilly saguaro forest. You will need a traditional saguaro picker or a 12' or longer extendable golf ball retriever pole you can get at a sporting goods store or here for $20: http://www.kellyathena.com/foraging-equipment-and-supplies.html (scroll down the link's page). We'll harvest saguaro fruit for about one and a half hours (no experience necessary), then return to the ranch house for a potluck meal featuring some wild desert foods. You can bring a dish of your choice if you'd like.
We'll endeavor to keep the 6' distancing rule in place for COVID and stay safe. Please bring sunscreen, sunglasses, lots of icy water or a Gatorade-type drink, a hat, and sturdy hiking shoes (it's rocky and hilly).
Our goal is to honor the desert and the traditional people's use of the delicious saguaro by harvesting some of the fruit.
The exact address will be emailed to you within a few hours of getting your Eventbrite ticket below.
