Event Description

What do you see in the green?

Identifying edible and medicinal plants around Vancouver

This class is all about identifying edible and medicinal plants around Vancouver.  Using some basic botany, students will learn to see depth and to distinguish plants in the endless Sea of Green that is the plant world.

5 Herb Walks – 5 weeks – 5 locations


7– 8:30pm

Starting Tuesday May 31

This class ran twice last season.  In each we looked at approx. 
20 medicinal and 15+ edible plants growing in Green Spaces around the city.


Class lead by: Garliq

Garliq is an Herbalist and Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner living in East Vancouver.  Deeply passionate about creating healthy communities, he really enjoys sharing/teaching about plant medicines and seeing the Green come Alive for people.  He's especially interested in sharing the sense of empowerment he's found from gathering and making his own remedies.

Check out Garliq's Biography to learn more about him and his work.
