Beer and wine will be up for grabs (for those 21 and over) between Moreland and Portland streets, and a community-wide mobile garden parade will kick off in the afternoon (to participate, contact Kenny Barrett, Roosevelt Row programs manager, at Kenny@rooseveltrow.org or 602.885.6267).
Also on the street will be demonstrations and lectures about desert plants and agricultural history, a series of food-related stories presented by the Arizona Storytellers Project, a collection of food-related crafts, including paper-making, seed art, palm frond-weaving, and natural dyes, and a mesquite bean-flour-harvesting demonstration.
Patey and Moore describe the event as a community effort and are still looking for volunteers, restaurant participants, and additional ideas, which can be submitted through the Feast on the Street website.
