Many of the native trees in Tucson bear edible beans. Brad Lancaster and the Desert Harvesters host annual native tree tours to educate Tucsonans on how to locate edible and tasty legumes. Desert Harvesters also hosts an annual mesquite bean milling to help turn mesquite pods into flour that can be used in modern kitchens. Their long term efforts include trying to get to people to think about native foods on a daily basis. Producer/Editor: Andrew Brown
