Join local herbalist and forager, John Slattery, for a presentation on some of our local edible and medicinal pollinator plants. Add a variety of desert-adapted plants to your home landscape while stacking the functions of bee food, human food, and plant medicine.

A slideshow depicting a variety of flowering plants and discussion of their virtues, along with gathering, preparation techniques, and medicinal applications. 

The Southern Arizona Beekeepers Association (SAZBA) will be auctioning off some desert plants to begin your xeriscaping at home. 

Also, my book, Southwest Foraging, features over 75 pollinator species

This talk is open to all members of SAZBA or anyone considering becoming a member.
