The quintessential event to participate in on July 4th is the barbecue. And though we have had a lot of trials and tribulations this 2020, we are learning, we are growing and we will continue to progress towards positive change, and that is something to celebrate.

Here is our local and sustainable guide to gathering eight essentials for your BBQ get-together. We've covered meat, meat alternatives, beer, spirits, bread, veggies, hot/BBQ sauce, and outdoor gear to ensure you have a great weekend in the books.

🔥 Fire up the grill and throw something on from Date Creek Ranch or NexVeg everyone will love.

🍺 Wash it down with a new release from Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co you can order online or pick up some spirits from one of our Green Business Certification grads, Adventurous Stills.

🍔 The buns are a key part to any good burger and Noble Bread offers some of the best bread in the Valley.

🍅 Sun Produce Co-op is a fantastic place to get your greens (and fruit!). They source everything in their weekly produce bags from various local farms across the valley (follow Good Food Finder AZ for more local CSA's near you!).

🌶️ Whatever you're grilling will be taken to the next level with Cutino Sauce Co.. This local hot sauce company knowns BBQ out of the park

🏕️ You want to hang out outside while you are grilling? Just Roughin' It has all of your outdoor needs from coolers, to tents, to chairs and sleeping bags.

Too many people getting rescued from Phx trails due to dehydration! So here are some tips for staying hydrated…
1. Start your hike hydrated. If you start your hike slightly dehydrated, you will not be able to “catch up”.
2. Drink 1/2 to 1 liter of water per hour of hiking. This depends greatly on temperatures and trail difficulty, but better to be carrying too much water than too little.
3. Hydration is not just water. Hydration is water AND electrolytes. Be sure you are including snacks, especially on hikes longer than 1 hour.
4. If you are not sure if you brought enough water, return to the trailhead once you have consumed 1/2 your water. Hiking further away from your starting point is not a smart move.
5. Keep extra water in your vehicle.
