In April, my herbal friends and I will be offering a week respite from the confusion of our current world. We are offering a retreat in a wild canyon of southern Arizona for those interested in wild plants, brillant night skies, local native foods, herbal simpling, and connecting with a wild place with semi-wild people. See: www.desertbounty.com for more information & how to sign up.
The winter rains have started generously this month and we will have a grand wildflower display here come spring if we get a few more rain events. Rain transforms the land.
The Sierra Club offers 2 separate weeks of service trips in the Altar Valley here. One week in February and another in March.The group is small, usually 12 people, and they always have a grand time helping on the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge. They learn a lot, too. Southern Arizona is a fabulous territory to explore.
A different service trip is offered in March west of Tucson, just an hour north of the Buenos Aires. Susan and Charlie lead a group of volunteers on the Saguaro service trip in cooperation with the National Park Service. You can sign up through the Sierra Club online.
Arizona has sunshine, open spaces, variety, and uniqueness.
