Turns out, mesquite trees provide more than shady parking spots. Did you know the trees’ pods are edible? And that mesquite flour is busting with calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc, and it has a low glycemic index? Okay, enough spoilers.

Area organizations Trees Matter and Audubon Arizona are hosting the Mesquite Class & Harvest Demonstration as part of the Edible Tree Series. Peggy Sue Sorensen — herbalist, forager, and instructor on edible and medicinal plants in the Southwest desert — will show you how to identify, harvest, store, and process pods during a talk and demonstration.

Join in from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14, at the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center, 3131 South Central Avenue. There’s a suggested $15 donation.
