Join us on an adventure as we harvest the suprisingly delicious and nuritionally rich buds of the misunderstood cholla cactus. Using traditional harvesting methods, participants will be taught how to carefully remove spines and cook cholla buds, while learning about their ecology, anatomy, ethnobotany, nutritional and medicinal qualities. This is the ultimate experience in eating local. You will leave with new recipe ideas to surprise friends and family.
