Hosted by: Canadian Freshwater Alliance
The native flora and fauna along the Thames River have sustained local inhabitants since time immemorial. You will be surprised at the variety different edible plants growing all around us. Join us as we learn about the basics of identifying edible plants along the Thames River. This plant tour will be led by Andrew Judge, professor and coordinator of Indigenous studies at Conestoga College, and Katherine Puzara from Growing Chefs! Andrew will focus on plant identification, how we can respect the natural ecosystem of the Thames River, and the cultural and historic contexts of these plant species. Katherine will focus on the many different culinary ways that these plants can be used in, share some great recipe ideas you can try, and even bring a homemade snack for us to sample.
