Event Description

What are weeds telling us? What information do they want to share? Are they People Plants? Could they help us in the near future? Are they food? Can we
make medicines with them? Come and discover the answers to these questions in this 100 in 1 Day family friendly walk at the Village Vancouver Field House with Lori Snyder from the Metis Nation. Learn to identify the plants that are growing under our feet, how best to incorporate these very beneficial and valuable plants in to your life and find peace in not trying to rid them from our gardens!

FREE. To register for this workshop contact Ross at or RSVP here.

Supported by a Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grant ( from the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Foundation./p>
