Arizona State University has a fantastic collection of rare varieties of date palms at the Polytechnic campus in Mesa/Chandler.

Late February/March - Pollinate the date bunches

April - Offshoot and date palm care workshops

May/June/July - Beat the heat in the early morning and bag the date bunches with the help of date palm experts.

October - ASU sells these dates fresh from the grove every Saturday in October. All proceeds benefits the Friends of the Arboretum to purchase tools and supplies. And in late September we get to taste test many rare varieties of delicious fresh dates. Give us a call or email for more details for this hands on urban farm work.
