It can be easy to forget about the wealth of food that grows all around us. In this Village Vancouver workshop and walk, 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. Children welcome to join if accompanied by a caregiver and able to participate in a classroom setting and outdoor walk. We'll have the community Seed Library present -- pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds.
