Wild harvesting is a fun and often delicious way to interact with nature. How can we benefit from local wild resources with minimal impact to the environment? Students will learn key aspects of plant life cycles, and gain resources for proper identification of plants including recognizing invasive species. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to determine healthy plant populations, where to safely harvest, and practical tools and resources to become a steward of your own backyard.
- Discover why sustainable harvesting is important
NOTE: As interest in wild foraging grows it is vital that this training be accompanied by knowledge and appreciation towards land stewardship.
Who should take this course? Anyone who currently practices or is interested in wild harvesting, and anyone interested in land stewardship. Beginners are welcome.
This workshop is taking place on the traditional lands of the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) & Lkwungen (Songhees) families. We acknowledge that sustainable land stewardship has already been practised on this land for thousands of year.
