Desert Harvesters Events
Desert Harvesters typically hosts a full calendar year of events and activities, including free native desert foods and desert living demos at Santa Cruz River Farmers Market, free Delicious Desert presentations at local library branches, trainings, festivals, guided harvest walks, hands-on workshops, and cooking classes.
Desert Harvesters is not currently holding community mesquite millings, but consulting services are available to community millers for best harvest and safety practices.
If you would like to share your milling event, please let us know.
