Event Description

It can be easy to forget about the wealth of food that grows all around us. In this Village Vancouver Eldergreens 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. Rain or shine. (We'll set up a tent if it rains.)

We'll have the Pt. Grey Village Community Seed Library present and you'll be able to take, swap or donate seeds.

$0-10 suggested donation. Free for Seniors (50 and over) and children under 10. Register here http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/early-summer-gardening-low-cost-workshop-free-for-seniors-1 or to ross@villagevancouver.ca.



Organized and led by seniors, VV ElderGreens brings seniors, youth and others together to share food & gardening skills and wisdom through workshops and other activities. All ages welcome, please contact us if you're interested in getting involved.
