    • 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM
    • Longview Elementary | 1209 E Indian School Rd | Phoenix, AZ 85014

    Join Boise Paper, Office Depot, Arbor Day Foundation, and Trees Matter to plant 25 trees at Longview Elementary school!

    Help us celebrate Arbor Day at Longview Elementary! Planting trees will make a huge difference for students, staff, and the community. These benefits will include access to more outdoor activities, shading and cooling walking corridors, better air quality, increased mental health and more! As the trees grow the benefits will grow with them, leaving a legacy of your hard work.

    We need volunteers who are able to dig, plant, and get dirty for a tree planting event on Saturday, April 27. Trees Matter will provide gloves, shovels, and supplies. Please bring a hat, a water bottle, sunscreen, and closed toed tennis shoes/boots.

    Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

    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.

     Once you taste the delicious flavor of Mesquite pods and sample some treats, you will understand why they are referred to as the “Sugarcane of the Desert”. The presenter, Peggy Sue Sorensen of The Desert Kitchen is a wild foods forager and teacher of the edible and medicinal plants, trees and weeds of the desert southwest. Peggy will explain and demonstrate how to safely harvest, process and store the pods, as well as how to eat them.

    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 is strongly suggested and tickets are $15 per person and $25 for 2 tickets.  

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