Ethnobotany of the Mesquite – In the Botanical Garden
December 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The mesquite tree (prosopis spp.) is a fascinating and vital species in this region, not just ecologically but also culturally, nutritionally, and economically. This workshop will include a basic introduction of the mesquite as a species but will primarily focus on how it has been used throughout history and its continuing importance today. This class will include a lecture, a tasting of mesquite food products, and will conclude with a walk through the Botanical Garden’s mesquite grove.
