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.
