Sonoran Desert Series: Beautiful Beneficial Bean Trees with Jill Lorenzini
May 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Meet the native mesquite, ironwood, and palo verde trees that anchor the Uplands AZ plant palette. These trees act as nurse plants for other desert flora, and create rich environments under their canopies where both plants and animals survive and thrive. Desert legume trees provide bountiful harvests of protein-packed beans and tasty pods year after year. The “Be Like a Bean Tree” poster encapsulates many of their attributes. Taste mesquite flour and pods, and shell and taste green palo verde beans.
