Thursday – Join the San Tan Valley Master Gardeners to explore the food sources that are found in the Sonoran Desert. Local plants supply food for not only desert animals in the ecosystem but also for humans, and have done so for native populations for hundreds of years. Learn about the plants in our area, how different parts were used as sustenance and cautions that need to be taken when preparing them. The instructors will have a display of resources and marketplace items that are already prepared, as well as take-home information that includes how to grow edibles in your back yard. 10-11:30am.
