Create your own Desert Food Forest

Create your own Desert Food Forest

Oct 21 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Attention all foodies! Grow your yard and eat it, too! The Linking Edible Arizona Forests (LEAF) Network will be teaching this class on how to create a desert food forest in your yard. Mesquite, prickly pear, and agave are just a handful of tasty plants that thrive in the low desert. Gain a new appreciation of the Sonoran Desert by learning about different kinds of edible trees and shrubs, including how to plant, harvest, and tend to them. Attendees will receive a free desert edible plant at the end of the class (one plant per household; first-come first-served). Funded by the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, and the USDA Forest Service. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
