Today we had the pleasure of harvesting with students from the University of Arizona's Public Health department. We assisted the students and volunteer farmers at Felicia's Farm, a nonprofit farm located in Catalina Foothills, Arizona.
The first group of volunteers left from the Iskashitaa office at 8 am and the second group followed shortly after. The farm is located on River Road. We were assisted throughout the day by the farm's own Ashton Inskeep and Sofia Forier-Montes.
The harvesters enjoyed learning about the items they were collecting as well as proper usage. Sweet Potato leaves & Amaranth. Both of which were in abundance today.
We left the farm after having cleared much of the amaranth and sweet potato leaves. But before we did we made sure to take a group photo right in front of the farm as a testament to the hard work we put in today.
If you would like to be part of our volunteer and harvesting efforts, feel free to contact the office through the contact tab at the top of our website.
As always, have a great day!
