About the event

Volunteers will be split into two groups. The group planting nopales will learn about the indigenous history connected with edible cacti from local archeologists during a short presentation, and then use shovels to begin cultivating our 3-acre indigenous edible orchard. The group planting fig trees will learn about proper fruit tree planting techniques from SA Parks and Recreation and then plant them in our 5-acre fig orchard. A few volunteers will be tasked with planting some peach trees in our peach orchard as well.
