Great turn out for the Edible Tree Celebration/Membrillo Fest​

Over 230 people visited Tucson’s historic Mission Garden October 22, 2016, to celebrate foods that come from trees. This dynamic, educational, fun event takes its name from cajeta de membrillo, the sweet, thick bars made from quince fruit. Cajeta de membrillo cooking demonstrations and tastings were led by Josefina Lizárraga. The event also included exhibits, orchard tours, music, and sales of tree seedlings that produce edible fruits, nuts, seeds and pods.

The Edible Tree Celebration/Membrillo Fest was co-sponsored by the LEAF Network and Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace, joined by many collaborators including the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, Trees for Tucson, Arizona Community Tree Council, Iskashitaa Refugee Network, Arizona Community Tree Council, and Bean Tree Farm. ​
