Summer Herb Walk, South Glenmore Park

Summer Herb Walk, South Glenmore Park

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Use your 5 senses to explore the hidden life of herbs, on a gentle trek through Calgary's parks.

Right here in the city, and we will find an abundance of plants to enjoy as food, medicine, shelter and tools. Some of these ‘weeds’ were brought from Europe by the Settlers, while others have lived here for thousands of years.

Meeting these plants and hearing their stories is a fun way to gain respect for the local ecosystems (indigenous and introduced) that make up the plant-world of Calgary. By understanding our unique place in the web of life, we honor and protect ourselves and our home planet.

About the instructor: Kalyn Kodiak is a Metis Herbalist, traditional knowledge keeper and activist in the natural healing community. Her work increases the spread of traditional knowledge that helps us lead healthy, connected lives. Kalyn runs the Calgary Herbal Student Clinic, teaches traditional skills to kids and adults, and serves as Vice President at the Alberta Herbalists Association.
