Nature's Fare: Edible Plants Tour

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.

This is a beginner event, so if you are already an expert, share this event with your friends! Please note: participants must be 10 years of age or older, and participants under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult. 

Registration cost is $6.65. Due to limited space on this trip, all wishing to participate must register in advance.
