There's a lot going on inside and out: cooking up desert food delights, building with earth, harvesting rain, growing soil, planting abundance, stewarding our watershed, sharing the bounty with the community.
We're in the Tucson Mountains foothills not far from downtown Tucson.

2018 WORKSHOPS at BEAN TREE FARM
$250 for four workshops of any of 2018 series includes:
All workshops build desert living skills, awareness and understanding in a beautiful and inspiring
Sonoran Desert Botanical Sanctuary
BUILDING WITH EARTH AND DESERT MATERIALS: In this series of four cool-season hands-on workshops, we build a plastered cob structure with earth that came from basins excavated for water harvesting, crafting, creating and artfully recycling resources on the farm. And we make and share delicious seasonal desert foods with participants.
BUILDING HOMESTEAD SKILLS: In this series we'll continue to explore Sonoran Desert Living- relationships between planting, building, sun, rain and resource recycling to enhance cooling, comfort and culinary creativity. Cob building projects continue, weather permitting.
BUILDING COMMUNITY AND ABUNDANCE: Spread the spirit of generosity and gratitude with inspired seasonal desert foods and gifts
