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.
