mesquite mill

Baja Arizona Sustainable Agriculture representative Michael Brown mills mesquite pods into flour during Thursday’s Sierra Vista Farmers Market in Veterans Memorial Park.

SIERRA VISTA — The holidays are here and many of us are gathering with friends and family to share food and celebrate. Baja Arizona Sustainable Agriculture is on a mission to promote sustainable sharing of native foods through projects like mesquite pod milling and gleaning.

“The goal is to turn Cochise County into a food oasis rather than a food desert,” said Christie Brown, chairwoman of BASA’s board.
