NATIVE EDIBLE PLANTS WORKSHOP
Sunday, August 7, 11am-1pm
The World In A Garden
West 57th & East Blvd., Vancouver, BC
Redefine local with an exploration of edible plants native to beautiful British Columbia. Patrick Wilson of Linnaea Nurseries will guide participants through the identification, uses and benefits of native edible plants, speaking specifically about the cultural significance of First Nation heritage on our food. Participants have the opportunity to learn from First Nations culture and our own native edible garden! As a thank you from The World In A Garden and their community partners, participants take home a native starter plant and a copy of Organic Gardening magazine. Now we’re talking local!
This workshop is $20/person. All proceeds benefit The World In A Garden. To register, contact Alicia Baddorf: 604-257-5151 ext. 213 | firstname.lastname@example.org
