Event description
Farm managers from the Tohono O'odham Nation's San Xavier Coop Farm team up with Tucson chef Janos Wilder to teach & cook

About this event

After a month or more of life-giving rain, the desert is starting to offer its bounty: the fruits of the cacti such as prickly pear and saguaro, the beans of the mesquites and palo verdes, and the verdulagas, the greens.

Traditional gardens are also bursting with fruits and greens and flowers. In this unique workshop we hear directly from the staff of San Xavier Co-op Farm and Mission Gardens, where we will learn the natural history and cultural importance of desert food plants, including the science behind important nutrients.

Rounding out the morning, Tucson chef and former board chairman of Native Seeds/SEARCH, Janos Wilder will cook up a feast with a selection of fresh monsoon-season desert foods, and we’ll have a live Q&A session with Janos and traditional gardeners from around the region.
