About the series:
Walk around your neighbourhood - edible and medicinal plants abound! "Wild Green Pesto" is the first of six workshops held one Thursday per month in the series "Eating What's Around Us", which looks to create awareness about what is available in our neighborhoods and at what time of year, so we can re-establish with the world around us, with our food, and our medicine. Each workshop will include an herb walk to identify and forage for wild and cultivated plants, followed by hands-on preparation of a food, salve, tincture, ferment, etc. Workshops are led by Garliq, a clinical herbalist and educator, and founder of the Urban Herb School (www.UrbanHerbSchool.ca) and the Living Medicine Project.
