These trying times have people worried about everything. Including how to put food on the table if there are ever shortages in grocery stores. Look no further than your backyard. Ever wonder about some of those plants? Most people never realize they have an edible garden without planting one! This will be a show and tell of native wild edibles you won’t want to miss. Susana Cruz will  provide you with a plan on how to collect without destroying your supply. Please join us for the adventure!

En ésta época de pandemia nos preocupamos de muchas cosas, incluyendo pero no limitado a proveer alimento para nuestras familias. Vimos la escasez de ciertas cosas y comidas en las tiendas de comestibles. ¿Si tiene patio, se ha preguntado de las plantas? A veces no nos damos cuenta de que son comestibles, sin plantarlas. No se pierda esta experiencia de aprender cuales plantas nativas son comestibles. También les mostraré como recoger sin destruir el suministro.  Únete a nosotros para la aventura en la naturaleza. 

Presentation will be in both Spanish and English. La presentación será en español e inglés
