With Martha "Muffin" Burgess

and

Friday, April 25, 2014
8 - 11 am

With our unseasonably warm weather this spring, the chollas are budding a bit early. We've added another workshop date (April 12th) to enjoy the abundance of this year's harvest! 

Ethnobotanist and NS/S board member Martha Burgess (Flor de Mayo Arts) will show you how to harvest, process, preserve, and cook with cholla buds, a traditional food of the Native Peoples of the Sonoran desert. Cholla buds are a superfood with high available calcium and complex carbohydrates that help balance blood sugar levels and provide sustained energy.

$30 for NS/S members
$40 for non-members (includes NS/S membership)

The workshops will begin at a residential location in West Tucson (directions will be emailed to you).
Register online for April 12th or April 25th. To register by phone, call 520.622.0830 x100.
