If you're unaware of the Watershed Management Group (WMG) located at 1137 N. Dodge Blvd. now's the time to truly appreciate what the folks behind the scenes do. The non-profit WMG develops community-based solutions to maintain the long-term prosperity of people and the health of the environment — "providing people with the knowledge, skills, and resources for sustainable livelihoods."
The group is constantly hosting events, too, and from 8 - 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 20 — Family Saturdays, to be exact — their next Living Lab.
The event allows you to taste food that's actually grown and harvested in the Sonoran Desert. Throughout the two hours, you'll harvest, prepare, and eat native edible plants. It's also an event for younger kids because they'll get to meet WMG's resident hens, experience stories, and there's even "song time."
The activities for older kids and teens include learning real programming skills by coding a digital food forest using scratch and stone carving. All materials will be provided, too.
If you want to attend the Living Lab, make sure you register online beforehand (it's required).
Family Saturdays happen every third Saturday of the month. To keep up with all of the events happening at Watershed Management Group, located at 1137 N. Dodge Blvd., visit watershedmg.org.
