Event Description

It can be easy to forget about the wealth of food that grows all around us. In this Mapole Oakridge Neighbourhood Food Network workshop and walk, you'll learn about edible plants that call our region home. Lori Snyder from the Metis Nation will discuss how to identify and harvest wild, edible, and medicinal plants in an ethical way. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Adults/families w/children 10 years+ are welcome - minors must be accompanied by a caregiver. We'll have the community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden (or swap or donate some seeds). 

Cost: $12.50. (50% discount available with Leisure Access Card.)
Register: #145841 Marpole Oakridge CC 604.257.8180 or in person or at Vancouver Recreation (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/native-edibles-walk-talk/141868). Register by 2 pm, Thursday, March 8.

This workshop is part of Village Vancouver's Building Community Food Security and Resilience Project. This project is made possible by the BC Ministry of Agriculture's Grow Local program. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Agriculture.
