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 have the West Pt. Grey VV community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds.

Cost: $12.50. Free for seniors (50 and over). Register: #169244 Aberthau 604.257.8140, press 1 or Native Edibles (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/native-edibles-talk-and-walk/166285) or in person. Advance registration suggested.

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