The Sonoran desert holds a vast array of edible plants. There are nearly 400 edible plants found in the low desert alone. When we add the high elevations of the sky islands the diversity of wild food plants is staggering.

The experience of relating with the wyld Earth to gather one’s food is a revolutionary act in itself.
