Edible Tree Series 

Trees Matter... and they're tasty!

Trees provide many functions and benefits. The Edible Tree Series is devoted to showing another function engaging the community to learn how different trees can be harvested, processed, and prepared as a means of food. Events in the the series are designed as a community building program with opportunities to attend potlucks, happy hours, take classes, go on harvesting events, and volunteer to support education of food that trees provide!

    Mesquite Presentation & Harvesting Demonstration

    Mesquite tree pods are some of our desert's greatest edible treasures. Mesquite flour has a low glycemic index and is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc.

    Come learn how to identify Mesquite trees and how to harvest, store, and process pods from Peggy Sorenson a Herbalist, forager, and teacher of edible and medicinal plant in the Desert Southwest. 

    This is an onsite talk and harvesting demonstration designed to help you to harvest from the mesquite trees you might have in your yard or neighborhood.

    Pre-registration requested and suggested $15 donation upon arrival. You are also welcome to donate in advance if you like.  

    Donations for this workshop will go towards supporting the mission of Trees Matter and Audubon Arizona who are proud to host this event together.
