Brad Lancaster - co-contributor to "Eat Mesquite and More" and author of "Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond" brings a Desert Harvesters' presentation and book tour to #truthorconsequences. Join us for what is sure to be an educational and entertaining hour and a half.

The presentation:

 Planting, Stewarding, and Feasting (from) Wild Food Forests Where We Live, Work, and Play

 A celebratory presentation on Desert Harvesters and other dynamo local wild food and rain planting efforts that have enriched southwestern communities, ecosystems, and palates – and how you can likewise enrich the community where you live.

 Desert Harvesters’ award-winning cookbook Eat Mesquite and More is your guide featuring 170 recipes from over 20 delicious southwestern food plants, and a few wild meats such as pack rat (the sweet meat of the desert). The book encourages a renaissance of “wild agriculture,” one that foregrounds the ethical harvesting and selection of wild foods with the re-planting of native food sources in urban and residential areas without imported water or fertilizers.

 Learn about milling grains from native bean trees; irrigating food-producing street trees and understory plantings for free with runoff from the street; throwing wild food and mulching parties; how to incorporate wild foods into your diet, along with the menus of restaurants and breweries; all the while growing friendships and neighborhood networks!

 Before you know it you’ll be putting wild foods in your mouth, your yard, your street, and your neighborhood as everyone’s health and joy grows
