Wednesdays are foodie days!

On Wednesdays Iskashitaa is busy harvesting limes, making olives, culling mesquite beans, or canning home made preservatives. No matter which week you join us, you will always have fun learning and enjoying time with other local volunteers and refugees. Join us this week at 8am at the Iskashitaa office and experience our community first hand. To sign up, please click here and follow the directions on the site. You will be contacted on the Monday before your harvest with more details! Hope to see you harvesting with us soon!
