New month has come and it is indeed July!

It is also our interns last month before they return to their homes so lets make this month worth it! :)

Short Spring Harvests: Fridays or when you have time
Harvesting local fruit and vegetables with Iskashitaa Refugee Network! You would be working alongside refugees picking fruit in backyards or local farms. We harvest excess citrus, figs, plums, squash, pumpkins, dates, corn, pomegranates and more. You will definitely have a chance to make new friends from interesting cultures, learn about eating local in Tucson and try some of these delicious fruits of the desert!
