Living in the Mojave Desert brings unique challenges and surprising rewards. Follow city expats as they explore permaculture, sustainability, native gardens and medicine, and desert art in Joshua Tree and Wonder Valley.
We want to plant trees while it's still cool - mesquite, willow, palo verde, smoke. I also want to plant ironwood but heard they don't grow in elevations over 2000 feet and we're at 2650. I love the bright green of the palo verde, hate the thorns - got two stuck in my foot this weekend - but hear they bear tasty pods of edible beans.
