  • Get hungry and then get fed for a good cause.

Celebrate the bounty of the Sonoran desert, get a good breakfast and help support sustainability practices all in one go by heading to the Edible Shade Mesquite Pancake Breakfast. The event, which benefits the initiatives of the Watershed Management Group, will offer insight into what the organization seeks to accomplish over your desired amount of mesquite pancakes.

While the mesquite tree is, indeed, a great source of shade in the desert, it can also be milled for flour, converted to syrups and more. The unique flavor of mesquite—and I don't just mean using the wood for grilling—shows the rare flavors our area is capable of producing. Plus, it's pancakes. The event will also celebrate other shady desert-adapted and edible trees like pomegranate, olive and more. 

The breakfast fundraiser will feature mesquite-sweetened cold brew coffee from Exo Roast Co., as well as vegan and gluten free options for the pancakes. Peddler on the Path will be on-site serving hot espresso drinks.

The Edible Shade Mesquite Pancake Breakfast kicks off on Sunday, Nov. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at WMG's Living Lab (1137 N. Dodge Blvd.). Pancakes run at $2 per or $3 for five. You also have the option of skipping the ticket line for this year's event and buying your breakfast online in advance via the Watershed Management Group website. As far as entertainment goes, the event will feature live music from the Brambleberry Duo, educational presentations from Carolyn Niethammer and Scott Calhoun and an artisan market.
