Join us this Saturday, October 22nd at 9am for this free workshop.
Andrew ‘Green Man’ Pisher, is certified in Urban Farming and continually studying Nutrition in order to teach anyone to grow and connect with the right plants for their health and well-being.
In Saturday’s workshop, Green Man will talk about the potential in foraging for a certain super food that grows very well here in the desert. There is a tree that grows a delicious bean that is packed with high levels of essential vitamins, minerals and especially healthy fiber and fats. This tree originally from the Mediterranean area of the world and has been an important food source for humans since the days of the Egyptians. The Carob tree, or Locust Bean tree is not well known in the United States due to the fact that this lovely shade tree only grows in certain climates where temperatures rarely reach below 42 degrees.
Let Green Man show you how to identify the Carob tree so you can find one in your neighborhood. He will teach you how to harvest the pods, remove the seeds and turn into a powder form that you can use in many ways, including: in breads, on oatmeal, in shakes, baked goods, as a chocolate flavor substitute (without added sugar), on cereal and other uses.
