Tasting Your Community

Saturday, May 21 at 9 am (PT)

Your community is more than just its people — it’s the whole ecological tapestry of interwoven lives in their environment. What better way to ponder local ecology than to eat of its riches! Join Desert Museum education specialist Jesús García to explore ethnoecology of the Sonoran Desert region. Sample native and traditional foods and learn techniques to gather and process them. Experiment with natural fibers and pigments.

Saturday, May 21 | 9 a.m. to noon
