In the “Placita” outside Mission Garden’s kitchen
FREE and open to the public (all ages). Monetary gifts are appreciated. Your gifts help the garden grow.
Mission Garden grows hundreds of traditional local crops. Tasting History is a new opportunity to learn about their origins, how they became part of our local agricultural and culinary traditions, how to grow them at home, and more. Docents will demonstrate and share tastings, written materials, and recipes.
"In November, we will talk about where olives came from, how they came to Tucson, and how olive trees grow. Our experts will demonstrate a couple methods of curing olives, one using salt brine and one using lye. There will be olive samples to taste that grew in Mission Garden!"
